Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, January 21st

General

General Horoscope

We are working our way back into the real world, but we’re not in too much of a hurry to get there today. The dreamy Pisces Moon invites us to while away the time in contemplation, meditation or fantasy. Nevertheless, we are coaxed into action when the moody Moon trines impatient Mars. Meanwhile, the progressive Aquarius Sun forms a creative alignment with moralistic Jupiter in shrewd Scorpio, encouraging us to put our high ideals to practical use.

Aries

Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

Self-imposed limitations are fading away now, allowing you to see vistas that were previously hidden. Your optimism may be so strong that walls disappear before your eyes, widening your perspective. However, you may be in for a rude awakening if you slam into something outside of your range of perception. Your positive attitude works in your favor as long as you balance your subjective visions with objective reality. Reaching for the stars is best when you keep your feet planted solidly on the ground.

Taurus

Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

It’s wonderful that people are so encouraging now, especially because you realize how much they believe in you. It seems as if everyone thinks you can do nearly anything you choose, but you might not always share their confidence. Sometimes, you wish they would take you off your pedestal, so you could exceed their expectations. Although your supporters inspire you to reach further, it would be nice, for once, to simply bask in the glow of accomplishment.

Gemini

Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

Your goals may be unrealistic today, but that won’t stop you from dreaming. Fortunately, you’re not required to turn every thought into reality; sometimes it’s healthy to imagine your life unfolding in perfection, according to your most colorful fantasies. The peace of mind you experience when lost in contemplation can increase your effectiveness in the real world. Focus less on arriving at an arbitrary destination than steadily progressing along your chosen path.

Cancer

Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

Expressing your gratitude has immediate positive consequences today as people catch your contagious enthusiasm. Choosing joy over doubt is a simple task if you consciously acknowledge the good in your life rather than focusing on the possible problems ahead. But your optimism won’t make the challenges go away. You still must do the work to overcome any negativity you encounter. Nevertheless, dwelling on things that might never come to pass is a waste of precious time. Robert Downey, Jr. said, “I’ve noticed that worrying is like praying for what you don’t want to happen.”

Leo

Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

You have a rare opportunity to broaden your horizons, but you may need to concentrate on domestic issues first. Although you’re inclined to fully engage the world and even modify it to conform to your expectations, you can’t effectively reach out now until your home and family life is in order. Social and global change originate within; start small and expand from there. Psychotherapist Nathaniel Branden wrote, “We must become what we wish to teach.”

Virgo

Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

You are known for your ability to narrow your focus in order to achieve a higher level of efficiency and perfection when engaged in any activity. However, reality is weaving a complex tapestry of interrelated events now, requiring you to open your mind wider so you can perceive the larger dynamics at work. You may need to confront your own resistance and fight your tendency to limit incoming data. Paradoxically, confusion is your friend because it forces you to let go of your previous assumptions, freeing your mind to see your world in a new light.

Libra

Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

Although you might be concerned that you’re not making intelligent use of your time today, productivity is a red herring which can distract you from what’s important now. Investing in your wellbeing is your top priority while the radiant Sun is illuminating joyful Jupiter in your 2nd House of Self-Esteem. Drop your guilt at the door. A Sunday well spent brings a week of contentment. Taking care of yourself is an act of love from which everyone benefits.

Scorpio

Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

You’re not one to be easily outwitted, especially if you sense that someone is purposefully trying to deceive you. But other people are not your biggest problem now; you are. You feel as if you’re so close to achieving your dreams that you could talk yourself into taking an unnecessary risk. You have worked very hard to obtain your current position. Don’t jeopardize your gains with an impulsive and likely foolish move made out of desperation. Bruce Lee said, “Small daily improvements are the key to staggering long-term results.”

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

People admire your extroverted nature and adventurous spirit, but your most significant growth now comes from an inner journey that is invisible to everyone else. The Sun is shining its life-affirming rays on expansive Jupiter in your 12th House of Spiritual Mystery. Your subconscious holds the secret keys to your destiny and you are being offered a chance to unlock the door leading to the wisdom you seek. However, there is no map that points the way to this metaphysical treasure. This path is for your footsteps alone.

Capricorn

Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

You may be the reluctant leader of your pack now, pushed to the front because no one else wanted the job. You might be called on to coordinate a social outing, even if your heart isn’t in it. Or, perhaps, your family members look to you for guidance on a domestic dispute. Although you naturally take responsibility seriously, you still could grow annoyed that you’re being put in this awkward position. Unfortunately, your feelings are less important today than the role you must play. Peter Drucker wrote, “Never mind your happiness; do your duty.”

Aquarius

Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

You can stand up tall and be proud of your life. It doesn’t matter how long the list of accomplishments is, what degrees come after your name, or how far you must still go to manifest your dreams. What counts is that you strive to find a spiritual meaning in your continuing struggle to be a kinder person and an all-around better human being. It means so much when your friends and relatives acknowledge your contribution to the world. Inspirational author Alice Hocker wrote, “Your greatness is not what you have, but in what you give.”

Pisces

Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

Your hopes are so firmly pinned to the future that you may struggle remaining in the present moment. The reflective Moon joins wounded Chiron in your compassionate sign today, encouraging you to help others with their pain as a way of ameliorating your own. It’s tempting to put your troubles into perspective by dreaming of a better time yet to come. However, the best strategy for improving your lot in life is as Ram Dass wrote, “Be here now.” Shift your thinking from potential to actual, from there to here, and from someday to immediately.

If You Were Born Today, January 21

You are an exceptionally fair person, and others appreciate you for this trait. They know they can count on you to be objective and reasonable. You are charming, talented, and a little moody. Money and security are important to you, and you do appreciate all that is associated with the “good life”, but you are never one to ruthlessly pursue these things if it hurts other people. Inventive and original, you are frequently dreaming up new and creative ideas, most of which can be quite profitable. Famous people born today: Geena Davis, Christian Dior, Benny Hill, Paul Scofield, Telly Savalas, Ethan Allen, Stonewall Jackson, Placido Domingo.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

With the Sun and Moon in a waxing semi-square at the time of your birthday this year, the period ahead is one of new initiatives and action. You possess quite a bit of energy, but you must be aware that emotions color much of what you do this year. It can be hard to be objective as a result.

This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.

You crave and seek more freedom this year, and how you deal with this issue makes all the difference as to the overriding themes of this period of your life. If you recognize your need for changes in key areas of your life and adapt accordingly, this can be an exciting year of discovery. However, if you resist change and insist on keeping things status quo, you are bound to feel very restless, tense, and rebellious. Either way, making healthy changes should be the focus instead of change just for the sake of change. Spontaneity, not impulsiveness, is the key to success this year. Fortunately, you have a lot of cosmic support for this.

You’re particularly charming during this period of your life, and you’re particularly proud of your relationships. It’s a strong year for strengthening your connections with others, both partnerships and friendships.

There can be a stronger tendency toward, or desire for, commitment and deep involvement in your relationships — you’re taking love seriously. There can be a willingness to make sacrifices if it seems the best way to make improvements in relationships and with money matters. You can be quite particular in your taste and good with money and savings.

Mercury forms a sextile with Neptune in your Solar Return, and intuition runs high. You are more sensitive artistically, your imagination is stirred, and you have an increased appreciation for subtleties. You are inspired and could even inspire others with your words. Some of your hunches could be prophetic. You are thinking more creatively, and express yourself with more sensitivity, compassion, and warmth.

There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. It’s a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful.

You’re expressing and asserting yourself more naturally and confidently this year, which benefits all areas of life. Suppressed anger is more effectively released in creative ways. It is easier than ever to express your individuality in a manner that is true to you.

You can feel as if you’re beginning a new chapter of your life this year as you start fresh on some significant level. Your passions and enthusiasm run high in the period ahead, and you find it natural to channel this extra energy constructively. This is an excellent year for enterprising endeavors and new interests, even if there is also a strong focus on the past. You’re drawn instinctively to certain projects that have long-term value. It can be an especially creative, tuned-in year for self-expression, not only verbally but through hobbies, games, or sports.

2018 is a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It’s a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are especially able to attract others–and material things as well–this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.

2019 will be a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study, observe, research, and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, January 22nd

General

General Horoscope

The luxury of humming dreamy tunes comes to a crashing crescendo when the Moon blasts into headstrong Aries at 1:26 am EST. It’s time to pay the piper if we drifted too far off course. The Moon’s square to karmic Saturn is a harsh reminder that we get what we deserve. Thankfully, Luna also forms supportive sextiles to the willful Sun and resourceful Venus, paving a path through the rugged landscape that makes it easier for us to find our way home.

Aries

Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

Sometimes your impatience is so relentless that you go ahead with an action you know will create problems. However, your logic is not the captain of your ship now, and you might not be able to talk yourself into waiting. Although the Moon’s return to impetuous Aries can convince you to take a risk, her square to naysaying Saturn puts a damper on your plans, even before they are off the ground. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”

Taurus

Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

You’re ready to slip into stealth mode today because you believe you can be more productive when you don’t have to explain every move you make throughout the day. In fact, your behavior might seem mysterious to those who can’t figure out why you’re not more forthcoming about your specific needs. You’re not trying to complicate anything, nor are you playing hard to get. In your mind, you’re simply willing to try nearly anything to accomplish more with less output of energy.

Gemini

Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

Yesterday’s reasons to turn down a social invitation might return as today’s justifications for saying yes. It’s confusing when reality can be perceived so differently in less than twenty-four hours, but the Moon’s shift into spontaneous Aries and your 11th House of Friends reminds you that your relationships are key to your happiness. Of course, you could get by on your own if you must, but it’s more fun if you can share life’s ups and downs with a community of like-minded people.

Cancer

Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

You are in the throes of a complex dilemma today as work-related opportunities require your response. Every cell in your body is screaming yes, but circumstances might not allow you to proceed at this time. Fortunately, patience is one of your secret weapons, so focus your energy on where you can be useful now and stop watching the clock. Thankfully, if it becomes a matter of who flinches first, your ability to wait for the right moment gives you the distinct advantage.

Leo

Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

You are just as impatient as the other fire signs, but your fixed nature can turn a frustrating situation in your favor now. Once you set your mind to accomplishing a goal, you are relentless in your pursuit until you reach your destination. Although you may run into one stop sign after another today, you’re not likely to become discouraged. You’re a pro at taking it all in stride because you understand that setbacks are not permanent; they are merely resting points on your way to success. Persistence is your ally when times are tough.

Virgo

Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

If you are involved in complicated negotiations with your coworkers now, it helps to know what motivates their actions. Luckily, you can see directly into someone’s soul today, enabling you to easily break through their normal defenses. However, you could accumulate bad karma if you use your current skill to gain unfair advantage. Enter every discussion with a clear goal in mind. Be forthright, state your intentions clearly, and don’t deviate from your chosen path. Hidden agendas and behind-the-scenes shenanigans will only come back to haunt you.

Libra

Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

You appreciate it when people are direct in their communication because it’s easier to respond when you already know how someone else feels. Nevertheless, you find it unacceptable when anyone comes on so strong that they don’t give you a chance to meet them on equal footing. In fact, you might withdraw from a discussion if the other person is too forceful for your taste. But don’t just disappear without an explanation. If you believe that your boundaries were not respected, make sure to say so in an appropriate manner. No one should mistake your kindness for weakness.

Scorpio

Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

Your work-related chores are well defined now, leaving little doubt about what is expected from you. Fortunately, you are confident that you can do your job in a timely manner. The self-willed Aries Moon is marching through your 6th House of Logistics, motivating you to shift into high gear in order to get traction and finish what you start. Once you know your role in the big scheme of things, you can figure out the rest on your own. If someone asks you, “What do you do?” Answer, “Whatever it takes.”

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

Hiding your optimism is a challenge today, but you don’t want to flaunt your confidence when others appear to be struggling. However, you’re not afraid to climb out on a limb and fully own your positive attitude now. Nevertheless, you still might annoy, or even shock, someone with your cavalier approach. It might seem as if you’re emotionally detached from the outcome of everything in the material world now, but that’s simply not the case. Every step on your journey is just as important as your destination.

Capricorn

Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

As competent as you are in the outer world, expanding your skillset in the inner world is a more complicated challenge. But you’re not one to take psychological exploration lightly; you might not even believe that it is your best defense against stress. Nevertheless, your serious nature pushes you into imaginative realms where magic is just as common as cause-and-effect. Khalil Gibran wrote, “Trust in dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.”

Aquarius

Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

You seem to be a conversation starter today and are unwilling to patiently wait for others to make the first move. You want all the facts you can get now because you believe knowledge is power. Don’t look for a signal that it’s okay to initiate a dialogue. Ask probing questions to start the ball rolling while the courageous Aries Moon is visiting your 3rd House of Information. You don’t need permission to begin when everyone expects you to take the lead.

Pisces

Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

You need a fully functioning social network today because the support of your friends can make all the difference in the world. But you can tell that there’s an emotional storm brewing and you want to know all the facts before you jump into a situation and find yourself in over your head. Thankfully, your greatest cosmic resource now is the reflective Moon’s presence in your 2nd House of Possessions, enabling you to accurately inventory what you have — both physical and metaphysical. Take a chance and reveal a secret to someone new. Nothing ventured; nothing gained.

Tarot Card of the Day

Strength


The Strength Tarot card represents nature, which, however wild in its primal form, is tamed by our subtler, finer self — our feminine side, our inner self. The will and passion of our instinctive nature does not need to be broken, but refined and brought to consciousness, so that all levels of creation may come into harmony.

The feminine soul-force contains a persuasive power that can nurture and induce cooperation from others, stilling disruptive energies by harmonizing differences in the spirit of collective good will.

2018 Tarot Reading

Month-by-month Tarot cards reveal your path to personal growth in 2018

It’s time to start preparing for a new year! For our Tarot overview of 2018, I’ve chosen to read with Major Arcana cards only. This gives us one large idea — a clear theme — for each of the 12 months, that we can then explore in more detail as the year unfolds, using the wisdom of the full Tarot deck. From these 12 cards I’ve drawn for us, the overall theme of 2018 seems to be the shifting relationship with the self. This will be a year of reflecting on our values and how we want to act in the world, with the cards asking us to consider and reconsider who we are as the months progress. This looks to be a year of layers of discovery, each one bringing us closer to personal truths, if we are willing to do the work.

January Tarot Card: The Lovers

Inner harmony as the beginning of a balanced life

Our final spread of 2017 left us with the caring energy of the Queen of Cups and the proactivity of The Magician. As we enter the new year, it is with a stronger sense of self. The Lovers echoes that in its symbolic union of different aspects of our character and achievement of inner harmony. It is just as important to honor and maintain the relationship with the self as it is the relationships we have with others. Personal balance is also what makes us loving and reliable partners.

 

February Tarot card: Strength

Practicing compassion

Being secure in our identity allows us to approach the world with compassion and understanding instead of fear and aggression. Inner strength is often a more helpful resource for navigating the world than brute force. Our ability to apply this type of influence will be either needed or enhanced this month. We must pay close attention in interactions with others and confront our own negative internal dialogue should it attempt to instill self-doubt.

Daily Love Tarot Card

 

 

The Emperor

A hidden aspect of the past is revealed and is something that lets you tear down a wall that keeps you boxed in. What old memory fogs the mind and your emotions today? Let it go because it is to do easy now. The freedom turns into courageously liberated, wise, and realistic energy. If single, it eases a focus on desired outcomes. That allows someone to feel free to express warmth without pressure, and they will.

 

Your Erotic Card of the Day

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Star

There may be a few obstacles in the way of getting what you want, but you’re very confident in your sexual prowess so you welcome a little healthy competition. You’re determined to pursue a sexual conquest and make them yours, and the Star predicts that you have all the right moves to accomplish your lustful goals. Your ego actually works more in your favor than against your goals today.

Earth Sky News for January 21st: Star-hop from Orion to Planet 9

 Above image of Planet 9’s path via WikipediaTonight, let the constellation Orion the Hunter show you the approximate position of the hypothetical Planet 9 in the starry sky. As of now, nobody has yet seen this hypothetical solar system planet, which, if it exists, is large and very distant. But – still, hypothetically speaking – there are reasons to believe it does exist, and so … the hunt is on.

Read more: Help astronomers look for Planet 9

The astronomer Scott S. Sheppard has said he guesses this planet might shine somewhere between 23rd and 25th magnitude, making this world about 6 to 40 million times fainter than the faintest celestial object visible to the unaided eye. Still, it’s fun to imagine the place in the sky where astronomers are searching for Planet 9. This is the place they think it’s most likely to be.

The sky chart at the top of this post shows that location. The chart, which is via Wikipedia, shows Planet 9‘s possible path across our sky, in front of the backdrop stars, from the years 1000 to 3000 AD.

Although this world, if it exits, is way beyond the range of our backyard telescopes, we can still star-hop from the constellation Orion to Planet 9’s possible location in the starry sky.

From around the world at this time of year, the constellation Orion climbs highest up for the night around mid-evening (9 to 10 p.m.) local time. From temperate latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere, Orion appears in the southern sky at mid-evening. From the equator, Orion appears high overhead, and from temperate regions in the Southern Hemisphere, an “upside-down” Orion shines in the northern sky.

Some of you may know how to star-hop from Orion’s Belt to Aldebaran, the brightest star in the constellation Taurus the Bull. If not, refer to the sky chart below. Once you’ve found Aldebaran, you’ve pretty much found the proposed location of Planet 9, which – again, if it exists, and if astronomers are right about its location in our solar system – lodges pretty much directly east of Orion’s Belt and directly south of the star Aldebaran.

Caltech astronomers first announced a hypothetical Planet 9 on January 20, 2016. What they called “solid theoretical evidence” exists for a giant planet – a 9th major planet in the outer solar system – moving in what they called a “bizarre, highly elongated orbit.” They nicknamed it Planet 9 then, and they said hoped other astronomers would search for it.

If it exists, the planet has a mass about 10 times that of Earth and orbits about 20 times farther from the sun on average than Neptune, which is currently the 8th major planet and which orbits the sun at an average distance of 2.8 billion miles (4.5 billion km).

The astronomers say it would take this new planet between 10,000 and 20,000 years to make just one full orbit around the sun.

Read more: Solid evidence for a 9th planet

Bottom line: Astronomers are searching for a hypothetical Planet 9 in the starry sky. You can use the constellation Orion to show you approximately where they’re looking.

A Little Humor for Your Day

How to Become A Witch in Nine Easy Lessons

 

In the 1980’s it was fashionable to be interested in the New Age. This is now a dreadful faux pas within the alternative scene, and in order to be accepted in the 1990’s metaphysical social set, one must have an interest in Witchcraft or Paganism. Of course, you don’t have to actually belong to a coven in order to be thought of as a Witch, you can bluff your way into being accepted as a fully fledged Witch simply by knowing a few terms and dressing accordingly. This brings us to…

Rule # 1: Image is Everything. After all, what’s the good of being a Witch if nobody knows you are one? You must therefore wear black at all times. If possible, stay out of the sun until you become really pale, as this makes the effect even better. For women (and adventurous males) dark eyeliner and black nail polish can enhance this look. Also wear crystals and cheap occult paraphernalia at all times, and make sure that these are as gaudy and bizarre as possible, as this can only help your image. Wearing a pentacle around your neck is an absolutely necessary accessory – the bigger the better! Capes and cloaks are optional around town – it depends on how much of a visual impact you want to make, but either of these are also crucial apparel at any ritual or gathering that you may attend.

Rule # 2: Name Dropping is Good. Every serious student of The Craft (and I’m talking here about the term for Witchcraft, not macrame) knows the name Gerald Gardner. This man revitalised Witchcraft in the mid 1900’s with his book about the true history of The Old Religion (some have called this book pure fiction, but only those picky few who like books to be based on facts). Real Witches however, never let historical accuracy get in the way of their spiritual path, so in conversations with other witches, quote his name as often as possible (in tones of awe) and you will always be rewarded with smiles of acceptance.

Rule # 3: Past Life Name Dropping is Even Better. Tell everyone about the past life memories that have been surfacing since you began studying the Black Arts. It is especially useful to remember a past lifetime as a Witch who was killed during the Inquisition, or at least recall a lifetime as a famous occultist. My past lives have included Aleister Crowley, Cagliostro, Mandrake the Magician, and most of the cast of “Bewitched”.

Rule # 4: Behave Strangely. Never forget why it was that you wanted to become a Witch – yes, so that you have an excuse for strange behaviour. Previously labelled eccentric behaviour patterns can now be accepted by others if they have a reason to explain it, even if that reason for howling at full moons while naked is simply, “He/she is a Witch, that’s normal for them evidently.” So, don’t let your friends down, behave strangely, you can get away with it now.

Rule # 5: Watch Occult Movies. Make sure that you watch the movie “Warlock” lots of times to perfect those soft landings after over-indulging with the flying ointments (read as mead and weed).

Rule # 6: Ready Yourself for Sex, Money and Power. Wasn’t this the other reason you were drawn to Witchcraft? In the past, adepts of the occult were known to possess charismatic, lusty and powerful personas – when people find out that you are a Witch, they may automatically assume (and therefore empower you) with these same qualities. This may sound pretty good, but unfortunately in today’s world, another group of people have become even more established within the realms of kinky sex sessions and unlimited power – yes, the politicians! Beware of this elitist group of power-brokers… they don’t want any competition to their manipulative monopoly over the gullible public – hence the laws against Witchcraft and divination that have remained unchanged for centuries. So, if calling yourself a High Priest doesn’t lead you to unlimited sex, money and power – or if it does, but you then find yourself as the target of political and legal harassment – you may have to put aside your cloak and broomstick and pick up a pin-stripe suit and a back-bench in Parliament. If you can’t beat them, try bribery, then if that doesn’t work… join them!

Rule # 7: Atmosphere is Essential. Your home must reflect your Witchy nature. Incense must burn continuously. It’s important that visitors see clouds of incense smoke billowing from a spluttering censer in the corner of your dim, dank and dusty home, so dismantle the smoke detectors and start collecting strange little bottles of exotic looking ingredients (use your imagination and label them with names like powdered bat’s eyes, or dried dragon’s gonads). And if you don’t like housework, you can explain that the layer of dust that covers your floors and furniture helps to neutralise the highly charged psychic energy that results from your magical spells, thereby protecting your home and possessions from electromagnetic disintegration.

Rule # 8: Be Patronising to Christians. In social discussions don’t forget to make plenty of derogatory remarks about fundamentalist Christians, but remember to save your most biting comments for other Witches that you don’t get along with.

Rule # 9: Brag About Your Psychic Powers. Any self-respecting Witch will tell you that after their initiation to Witchcraft, their psychic powers awakened and their tarot cards (which they always carry with them) are now much easier to read (they now get something right once in a while). They will also tell you that they can now sense energy fields (in other words, they don’t bump into things as often as they used to). Follow this example and brag about the rapid development of your psychic abilities since your initiation. If asked about your initiation ceremony, simply state that you were sworn to secrecy about it, then quickly change the subject by mentioning your newly awakened ability to detect Ley-lines, but try to remember that a Ley-line is not a queue for the after-ritual orgy!

Now you know how to pass yourself off as a real Witch, so place that broomstick in a conspicuous corner (one that is not clouded by too much incense smoke); pull on those black clothes; give everyone that you meet a sinister look – and your social status will improve overnight. If you do all of this successfully, you may even find yourself with enough adoring acolytes so that you can start your own coven! Good luck and Blessed Be!

The Witches Digest for Friday, January 19th, 2019

(Part 2 Horoscopes & Divination)

2018 – Rise Of The Earthkeepers

Last year ended with a powerful Super Full Moon highlighting the last vestiges of turmoil, confusion and emotion, which characterized the past year.  In 2017 we experienced the breakdown and simultaneous release of the foundational energies of our world.  The resulting purification and timeline shifts made it very difficult to see the way forward.  Nonetheless, despite all the disarray a profound healing occurred, which expanded the new consciousness on the planet.

The old world is rupturing and in 2018 we see the continuation of this process.  The governments, wars and abuse of woman and children is the old world dying off.  It is may seem that these external disasters and challenges are building, but they are being emphasised pushing us to change.  The old, dominate, ego-driven world is collapsing and a new soul-guided reality is emerging. With the rise of this new reality a very necessary transformation is taking place in our basic human ethos.  A new awareness is awakening and will realign humanity with Universal principles and values, which take into consideration the Earth and nature. An adjustment in the balance of all things on this planet will ensue.

Everything in our Universe is comprised of five elements, which work in balance, to create physical form.  These five elemental forces of water, earth, air, fire and ether are the building blocks of all life.  They come together in an alchemical process to create life.  At the center of our world is the Earth, the planet we live on. Moving around and over the Earth is Water in the form of oceans, rivers and lakes.  Water nourishes and impregnates the Earth to give life.  Over the realm of Earth and Water is Air, the atmosphere in which we live.  All living things need air to breathe.  Then we have Fire, which lights up our sun, moon and stars and generates the life force energy needed to sustain life.  And finally, Ether, which connects all things.  Balance is the force that unifies them.

All of nature receives, stores and transforms energy.  The patterns in nature are complex systems, which facilitate the flow and transformation of energy on and in the planet.  Everything is connected by these energy flows and any disruption to the energy carriers (nature) can cause major environmental changes, which affects all of life on Earth.  Because of the interrelatedness of all life on Earth, all living things upon her share an evolutionary process.  Being intimately connected to the planet we require a balance of nature’s element to grow, evolve and survive.  Our energetic bodies are intimately connected, via the elements, to the energy flows in nature.  Our emotional body is connected to the Water; our physical body to the Earth; our mental body to the air; our spiritual body to the sun; and our Soul to Ether.  As a result of this deep energetic connection, we experience a sympathetic response to any damage in nature.

In this modern world, it has become easy to forget our connection to and dependence on nature.  With this disconnection from nature humanity has forgotten that the Earth is a living, sacred being.  We have drifted away from the sacred essence of the Earth and focused our awareness and energy mostly on the development of the physical and mental aspects of our being.  The emotional and spiritual have been largely neglected.  Thus, we have lost track of who we are and why we are here.

The damage done to nature is more awful than the world’s worst nuclear accident.  Chernobyl caused a lot of human damage and yet, the ecosystem as a whole has thrived without humans.  The idea that humans are superior to nature is only an assumption that lies within the shadow of the collective mind.  Our emotional, physical, mental and spiritual aspects are out of balance, which is reflected in the natural world with the damage to the Earth, the pollution of the waters, the poisoning of the air and the explosive nature of our sun.  As a result, humanity is living in its shadow and we have become fractured and fragmented.

The great harm that has been done to nature needs to be corrected.  With the rising of the new Earth the energetic patterns, which create and sustain life, are evolving.  These patterns exist at all levels and permeate the Universe reflecting the unifying order of all creation.  The evolutionary process is occurring in response to nature’s need to heal.  Humanity will therefore be required to evolve and heal emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually to ensure it’s survival upon the planet.  For that reason, it is essential that you reconnect with and develop a deeper, more conscious connection with nature and the Earth.

Nature is receptive and relishes being an active participant in your healing and growth.  Spending time in nature attunes your energy and enables you to assimilate and integrate the changing energies emanating from nature.  This adjusts your biorhythms to meet those of the planet, bringing balance and a profound shift in your relationship to the natural world.  As a result, your entire energetic structure will alter to rebalance the elemental forces within you.  A process which will assist you in anchoring your soul within the new Earth reality.

This year, more than ever, it becomes import to reconnect with nature’s cycles of birth, life, death; spring, summer, autumn and winter.  This connection will expand your consciousness and highlight your role as an Earthkeeper.  As you realise this role you will begin to realise that you have the capacity to communicate with the Earth because you come from the Earth.  Nature will transmit subtle messages and guide you to uncover what is in need of healing in both yourself and the natural world.

As an incarnation of divinity, you hold the power to create, neutralise and transform energy for the planet.  Embrace your role as an Earthkeeper and humbly learn to walk a path of harmony and balance.  Learn to focus your energy and become the living link between Heaven and Earth.  Remember that you hold the power to bring change and transformation to humanity.

Root yourself in the Earth and surrender your need to control and dominate.  Connect with nature’s evolutionary process and allow yourself to feel its abundant energy. Hear the Earth’s cry and journey to the oceans, the mountains, the forests and the lakes.  Learn to dance with the elements, to shift energy and awaken the every-flowing well of creativity that resides deep within you.  Engage the full power of your heart and seek to live your life in reverence for all of life.

This Weekend’s Love Horoscope: Share the Love

Your love horoscope for the weekend of January 19-21

This past week Venus entered the humanitarian sign of Aquarius, reminding us of the importance of tending to our friendships and community relationships — not just our intimate ones. This weekend, you’ll want the freedom to mix and mingle and to express your individuality. If you are coupled up, allow your lover to express their unique self and encourage them to spend time with their friends; it would be advisable that you do the same for yourself! If you’re single, this is a good time to find some organizations, clubs, or causes you are passionate about. You’re open to sharing your love freely and unselfishly with the world now — who knows, you could meet a potential partner this way!

On Friday the brilliant Sun also enters Aquarius, so these themes of freedom, originality, and universal love are especially strong this weekend. Mercury makes contact with Neptune, also on Friday, and your mind will feel stimulated in the most positive ways; you will have more sensitivity and awareness of those you surround yourself, and fantasizing about the future is likely. Sharing these hopes and dreams with loved ones is a surefire way to strengthen your bond now.

Your Weekly Love Horoscopes Beginning January 18th

Sarah Bartlett, Astrologer

The Astrology Room

 

With Venus now moving on into laid-back Aquarius, we should all be welcoming new romance if single, and just feeling the joys of love if attached.

However, with Jupiter’s cautious influence in Scorpio, it will come as no surprise that any suggestions of future commitment will be met with hesitation. Just make sure you stay light-hearted and ready for positive change in the weeks to come.

 

ARIES

If single, it feels like there is a chapter closing, or maybe a new one beginning? If attached, maybe just a realisation that it’s time to welcome change, or evolve together rather than apart. This week, relationship wounds are dumped, but more importantly, you can free yourself from your attachment to those very injuries.

 

TAURUS

It’s a time when, if you don’t accept you need to rethink about the way you love, you will simply end up sabotaging your feelings. Similarly, you might deny your desire for someone, saying ‘no, of course I don’t feel that, who me?’ That ‘feeling’ is something you’ve got to now acknowledge and express.

 

GEMINI

Thanks to Venus moving into Aquarius, you have the charm factor, diplomatic skills and relationships are light-hearted and creative. This week your face in the mirror is more self-aware. If single, you draw intelligent characters into your life. In fact, you are natural, seductive, authoritative and balanced again.

 

CANCER

If you can be less worried about staying in control of a romantic situation, and more open to what may be, you will discover better communication with someone too. On offer is sexual honesty, tolerance, space and acceptance of your differences. Try it all out and see how vitalising it can be.

 

LEO

Now no-one likes to be emotionally blackmailed. But there does seem to be someone who’s intent on profiting from your generous heart right now. This week, you really have no choice but to break free from the chains of those who are taking advantage, and show that you have the courage to be a little selfish too.

 

VIRGO

It’s time to stop telling yourself you’re not good enough to be loved. Also, give up on that distorted thinking where you pick out something negative about your admirer and dwell on it to the exclusion of anything else. Welcome the positive, and you welcome true love into your world.

 

LIBRA

You’re either falling in love with someone new or tangled up in a love knot. Of course, you might simply obey the ‘rules’ of the love game and play safe. But can you honestly say that you will ‘obey’ anyone apart from yourself? Do whatever it is you have to do your own way, but at least honour your independence.

 

SCORPIO

It’s time to listen, appreciate and open your heart to what you truly want. If you are loving your partner because of their talents, then please remember that you have those gifts too. The planets simply confirm to you that it’s never too late to be as ambitious in love as you are for your future.

 

SAGITTARIUS

This week, you have every opportunity to achieve great personal happiness in any new venture.  But remember, there will be times when you feel like you’re having to battle a lover or partner to be heard. So enjoy a little light-hearted banter and some intriguing fun.

 

CAPRICORN

There’s really no choice but to open up about your true values. Consider whether you feel under some obligation from others, from your partner if attached, or if single, just from your own sense of self-doubt?  Knock them all, metaphorically, on the head, and get on and live.

 

AQUARIUS

A sudden realisation is that you’re about to embark on a course of romantic bliss. This week, you discover exactly the truth about your own feelings and someone else’s. So let love work its magic for you – it’s now or never to make a commitment to your happiness.

 

PISCES

Admirers or partners are probably more worried about their own self-development than about any spiritual affinity with you right now. But behind any hard-edged ego is also another lonely child who has a soul like your own. This week you can start to make romantic tracks again towards the merger of true soul-mates.

David’s Daring Dating For The week Beginning January 19th (for the singles among us)

David Wells, Astrologer

The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

Some people aren’t what you’d call enthusiastic and no amount of attention is going to change that Aries. It seems a shift of emphasis would be in order and you don’t have to look too far. A friend of a friend’s friend may be far enough! Get networking.

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

The combination of Jupiter and Mars has brought about some intense relationship vibes but are they the sort that bring you love or bring you more questions and even some choppy waters ahead? Question, keep questioning until the right answer comes along, or the right ‘one’.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

If it’s all too much for you, why don’t you sit down, take a deep breath and get out the telephone, tablet or computer. Distract yourself. That’s way better than actually dealing with someone making those eyes. Not ready for romance? Seems it’s ready for you.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

If you’re seeking some sort of in depth conversation, some traditional flirting perhaps, or maybe an introduction from their parents? You may be disappointed Cancer; new love appears to be less conventional than ever. And way more fun.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

What you’re getting out of the chase is important, not so much this week but for next. You’ve got yourself centred, you can see who’s in the frame and confidence is high; that’s just what you need. But don’t go for it just yet. Next week could bring a change of heart. Pause.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

An exchange between your relationship sky and your how you doin’ sky may not be encouraging what you’d call anything long-term. That would be an illusion. Someone you might think of as Mr or Ms Right Now, could reveal themselves as the rightiest of rights ever.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

With so much going on in your new love, true love sky you could be forgiven for getting your flirt on and sometimes getting over enthusiastic with the expected outcome. Dial it back a bit Libra, all in good time; no need to rush this one.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

If Peter Piper could pick a peck of pickled pepper, what’s the time in Beijing? Hilarious! I would totally get that Scorps, I would laugh and reply with an equally stupid joke but then, I get you, really do. No response from some quarters though. Give it a week.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

Mars, Lord of passion and enthusiastic responses is in your sign from Friday. Friday? Don’t worry, his magic starts early I am sure but it may rely on whether or not you’ve truly cut a chord from your past? By past I do mean an ex Sagittarius. Just Saying.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

If losing Venus from your sign wasn’t bad enough the Sun is out from the top of this week, so no sunshiny new relationship for you? Not true. Saturn helps with a karmic show and tell, revealing someone with true potential. Do your slowly, slowly thing.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

If you’re considering pointing Venus in the right direction you could start by getting clear on what you’re looking for? Truth is it works slightly differently Aquarius, by getting clear Venus activates her true love vibes and love comes to you. Start by knowing what you’re truly looking for.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

Sending some extra vibes is your new love planet, the Moon. She’s with you until Monday and as she’s hooking up with Neptune this could be a very romantic start to your week. All you need now is someone to have it with. Get out. Please.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, January 19th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Be nice to all you meet today as power lies in the very faces you think can’t help you move forward. Someone you stopped talking to wants to make peace. Aspects suggest they may be too late. Are they Aries?

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
If you can express your soul, then the rest ceases to matter Taurus. Knowing how much is too much to ask of others is the key to you keeping friends in both your personal and professional life.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb Gemini. That’s where the fruit is! Things you had promised to do for close ones must be honoured if you are to avoid damaging the relationship you had built up.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
Don’t be angry at close ones who have only tried their best in what has been a very tense time in both your lives. Showing support and understanding can tell you much about their back story you did not know.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Don’t do things which you know are going to aggravate a close one just to get a rise out of them. You and I know you’re better than that don’t we Leo! Maybe if you tried telling them what decision you want reversed, you’d both be happy.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
Travel brings luck into your life and can prove that you were right to make the changes you did at the beginning of this year. Let’s be honest Virgo, you could not have stayed as things were anyway.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
Take your time when doing any jobs today, as rushing will be your undoing my friend. I know you’re angry that something didn’t work out earlier in the month, but trust me, it will be to your advantage.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Work hard today Scorpio as those with the power and know-how will be watching you. Finding time to check in with family can put you at ease over something you were beginning to feel guilty about.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Try not to judge new faces too soon or you could miss out on forming an important new friendship and influence in your life. This rash mood is due to a phone call you have not received. So why don’t you make it?

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Don’t be upset if others are upset by your work and your efforts today. Many of the signs are nit-picking and feeling irritable thanks to the pressure Mars has placed on our day to day lives.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
Paying attention to detail today can save you money and improve your reputation. You begin to see what good can come from taking your time when others comment on how impressed they are.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Many of the signs are feeling more fractious than usual. If someone tries to push you to do something you don’t want, stand up and say no. You don’t have to shout to be heard but you do have to find your voice to keep your self-respect.

If You Were Born Today, January 19th

 

You have a fabulous sense of humor, your own unique sense of style, and powerful emotions. Success-oriented, when you are able to focus on specific goals it would be hard to steer you from the path towards them. You are personally powerful and have a strong presence or aura, and others tend to follow your lead. You can be very stubborn at times! You are also very hard-working, caring, and kind to those you love. Although you don’t easily let down your guard, once you do trust, you are very protective.  Famous people born today: Edgar Allen Poe, Paul Cezanne, Janis Joplin, Dolly Parton, Robert Palmer.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

Your birthday this year occurs shortly after a New Moon, suggesting a time of new beginnings and fresh energy. You are instinctively starting a new phase in your life. It’s time to give your life a makeover and to branch out into the untried.

This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.

You crave and seek more freedom again this year, and how you deal with this issue makes all the difference as to the overriding themes of this period of your life. If you recognize your need for changes in key areas of your life and adapt accordingly, this can be an exciting year of discovery. However, if you resist change and insist on keeping things status quo, you are bound to feel very restless, tense, and rebellious. Either way, making healthy changes should be the focus instead of change just for the sake of change. Spontaneity, not impulsiveness, is the key to success this year. Fortunately, you have a lot of cosmic support for this.

Personal magnetism is tremendous this year. You are playfully competitive and might win a major competition, if applicable. This is a good period for creative projects and joining with others in pursuing a common goal.

You have enterprising spirit this year, attracting strong opportunities on both professional and personal levels. You are able to see the “big picture”, which helps you plan effectively. You have significantly more courage and gumption, making the year ahead a standout one in which you are ready to try new things and take on challenges.

Your ability to concentrate and focus is enhanced this year with Mercury conjunct Saturn in the Solar Return chart. This sometimes suggests a need for solitude when you work or a year in which you often retreat to work on specific tasks on your own. You might be required to travel for business purposes. It can also indicate that young people in your life are more mature or serious in their approach to life. Thinking in realistic and practical terms is your best bet, and the need for tangible results for your efforts is strong.

You have a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn this year, with opportunities emerging to match. Optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve. Your social life will likely increase and bring you in contact with helpful people. Travel opportunities are likely. Pinnacle successes can occur during this period – for example, publishing an important project, graduating, marrying, having a child, getting a promotion, and so forth. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests proceed smoothly. It’s a good time to seek out advanced training or to further your education. You are likely to enjoy good humor, optimism, and a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.

Some disruptions in your friendships and attachments are possible with Venus in hard aspect to Uranus in your Solar Return. Unusual attractions (to people and things) can have you acting on a whim. You may deal with freedom versus closeness issues in your relationships. This Uranian energy may play out on other levels related to socializing, spending, and pleasure. For example, vacation plans may go awry or agreements could be broken. Impulsive spending is something to watch for.

This can be a year in which you are bolder, more assertive, and energetic. You are especially interested in setting goals and challenges for yourself this year, and taking the necessary action to meet them. You may meet or interact with others who encourage or inspire you in some way to have more confidence in yourself.

You can feel as if you’re beginning a new chapter of your life this year as you start fresh on some significant level. Your passions and enthusiasm run high in the period ahead, and you find it natural to channel this extra energy constructively. This is an excellent year for enterprising endeavors and new interests, even if there is also a strong focus on the past. You’re drawn instinctively to certain projects that have long-term value. It can be an especially creative, tuned-in year for self-expression, not only verbally but through hobbies, games, or sports.

2018 is a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to pay special attention to practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, development, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

2019 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of discovery and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise, promote, and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken for the better. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed; or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, diversify, mingle.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, January 20th

Claire Petulengrom Astrologer

The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
The first two rules of personal growth are: 1/ it will be difficult, 2/ it will be worthwhile. Keep this in mind when facing opposition today. It’s how you will keep going when those around you fall.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Don’t be too quick to turn down doing something which is out of the norm or which tests your limitations. You have been living life by others’ rules for far too long now and it’s time to recognise your own needs.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
Others will be calling on you to do favours for them. Know what you will and won’t do before you start Gemini, or you could end up getting pressured into things you will regret. Ring now to hear how overseas is calling for you.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
Don’t be surprised if you find it hard to get hold of those you want to talk to. Saturn is not feeling at his most friendly, so you may end up having to do what was promised yourself.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Think before you speak today, or you could end up revealing secrets which will destroy the lives of others. Why not try putting this excess energy into working through those mixed up feelings?

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
A new flirtation leaves you feeling confused and bewildered. A sign such as you was never going to only have one person interested in them. Just remember you are the one who has control so don’t feel pressured.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
The need to see someone you miss could see you telling a white lie in order to find the time you need. Don’t over explain as your honest nature could be giving away more than you realise.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
New ideas get you excited and that ‘lull’ you were in begins to feel like a thing of the past. You now have eyes firmly forward on the future (and not a moment too soon!) Someone close is ready to make amends too.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Showing tenderness to loved ones today will help them move on from the difficult air which stilted the weekends progress. Events you are invited to at this time are an indication of someone’s acceptance towards you.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
You will feel like cancelling plans but don’t! Sticking to what you’d planned is the key to you feeling like the old you again. I know recent events shocked and unnerved you. But they won’t from today.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
A word to the wise Aquarius. Don’t go discussing other people’s lives if you don’t want your own on display for all to see. There is a jealous air in your chart which needs dispelling before this weekend is over.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Try to have patience with those who have done wrong. There are many signs in the zodiac who are displaying extreme tendencies at the moment and you would be wise to offer them more time to acclimatise to what’s acceptable.

 

Your 2018 Horoscope: On the Edge of Greatness

Your 2018 horoscope reveals what’s waiting for you in the new year

 By Maria DeSimone


Without a doubt, 2018 will be a year to get down to business. A series of planetary switch-ups allows for notable support in practical matters. You’ll build foundations in your life by trusting your instincts. You’ll also seek out an innovative approach to your finances — all with great potential for success.

Back on October 10 of 2017, Jupiter, the planet of possibilities, began swimming in the emotional depths of Scorpio, and remains in this sign until November 8, 2018. With Jupiter moving swiftly through Scorpio as the year begins, you’re already feeling quite comfortable with profound, intimate, emotional exchanges in your relationships. You’ll continue to feel blessed when you explore hidden terrain, since you’ll likely find buried treasure that will help you grow spiritually, psychologically, and physically.

Your personal powers are strong

2018 will be a year of heightened intuition, so if you’ve wanted to cultivate your psychic gift, the universe is offering to be your mentor. Pay close attention to May 25 and August 19 when Jupiter will be at a perfect trine to Neptune. Faith, intuition, and luck are your perfect trifecta around these dates.

Jupiter and Pluto will also work together well this year — a stark contrast to the power struggle they engaged in during 2017. On January 15, April 14, and September 12, these planets will help you remember that you had the power within you all along. More importantly, this planetary connection will encourage you to use it in a way that strengthens you and those in your circle. Business and financial ventures will be favored.

On November 8 Jupiter enters Sagittarius, the sign Jupiter naturally rules. This will be an auspicious time when you notice greater success and support in any endeavor that opens your mind. It’ll be time to explore new horizons!

Building foundations for the future

While Jupiter encourages us to grow through expansive opportunities, Saturn, his counterpart, demands that we grow through patience, discipline, and hard work. On December 19, 2017, Saturn moved into Capricorn, the sign he naturally rules. Until 2020 we’ll have dominating lessons about building solid foundations that will serve and protect us through any storm. As the New Year begins, we’re still getting used to the subtle but profound difference Saturn makes when he moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.

Consequently, in 2018 you’ll know that it’s time to approach your life and responsibilities with a plan. Fortunately, you probably feel ready, willing, and able to do so. As long as you come to the cosmic workplace on time each morning ready to do the work necessary, Saturn in Capricorn will help you build a structure in a certain area of your life that you’ll be able to rely on for the long haul.

Revolutions and revelations

Later this year, expect a material revolution to begin. From May 15 to November 6, Uranus, the planet of innovation and sudden change, will give us a hint of what he can do when in the practical, financially-oriented sign of Taurus. Expect a shift in the financial market — especially anything that has to do with technology and science. On a personal level, how you maintain physical and material security is likely to change. You can choose to reinvent yourself in these areas or you can resist. If you fight it, though, you’ll only feel more rattled and ultimately left behind when the rest of the world moves into more progressive terrain. Lastly, Mars and Venus will both retrograde in 2018, making certain times tricky to successfully negotiate new business ventures and romantic endeavors. Avoid launching anything new from both June 26 – August 27 while Mars is retrograde, and October 5 – November 16 when Venus retrograde.

Remember, success in life is most supported when we swim with — and not against — the tides. Why create unnecessary strain? Don’t work in contradiction with planetary cycles. Instead, let them work for you.

2018 Year of the Dog Horoscopes

See what the Year of the Brown Earth Dog has waiting for you


Loyal, rule-abiding, and cautious, the Year of the Brown Earth Dog is one that rewards pragmatism and discourages selfishness. During this Year of the Dog (starting February 16, 2018, and ending February 4, 2019), it’s time to create secure foundations, even if this requires scrimping and saving. Working collectively will pay off handsomely in 2018. Dogs are pack animals and feel more comfortable when operating as part of a team. “All for one, and one for all” is the motto of Dog years. It will be much easier to attain objectives when acting as a group now, rather than operating as an individual.

Businesses that involve serving others will fare well during the Brown Earth Dog Year. Unions are strongly advised to lobby for raises, increased benefits, and more vacation time in 2018. Police officers, firefighters, teachers, hospital attendants, utility workers, and civic workers can benefit from collective bargaining this year.

Because Dogs are anxious creatures, it’s important to guard against being overwhelmed during 2018. World events can feel oppressive and burdensome. Having a physical outlet for frustration is critical this year; daily exercise is an essential component to the Dog’s health. Hitting the gym regularly should make it easy to avoid infectious illnesses like colds, coughs, and flus. As far as mental health is concerned, Dogs are social creatures who require convivial companionship to stay in top form. Connect with friends as often as possible.

The Year of the Dog emphasizes morality and idealism. Cynical attitudes can create setbacks in 2018. It’s best to strive for the greatest good for the largest amount of people during a Dog year. The need for increased security is another theme this year. This is a great time to upgrade your alarm system, passwords, and firewalls. Take extra care reviewing financial statements for fraud. Above all, keep precious possessions under lock and key. By channeling the protective power of the watchful Dog, you can avoid stressful losses.

Because it is a Brown Earth Year, 2018 will be a time of stability, organization, and persistence. Over-the-top fashions will be replaced by utilitarian looks. Wash-and-wear fabrics, looks that easily flow from day to night, and versatile staples will dominate fashion runways. Extravagant displays of wealth will give way to frugality. Eateries that specialize in home cooking will perform better than gourmet restaurants. In terms of culture, stories about common folk will fare better than ones about superheroes. The Year of the Brown Earth Dog urges us to stay grounded, contented, and connected.

Your Cosmic Weather Report for the Year 2018

by Jane Lyle, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

Welcome to 2018!

2018’s constructive potential reaches out to us amidst the chaos.

We can, if we choose, focus on building firm, new foundations in physical, creative, and soulful ways. And we can work on rebuilding or reinventing what’s wobbling in our world – from love, sex, and friendship to money and meaning.

Our collective thinking about our significant responsibilities towards life on Earth itself can begin to develop in new, practical directions. Many of 2018’s planet patterns invite us to act in positive ways, but of course it’s ultimately up to all of us to not only embrace hope, but to roll up our sleeves, feed our imaginations, and get to work. Happy New Year!

Astrology’s Five Big Signposts for 2018

1) Earthbound: Saturn in Capricorn, 2017-2020:

Old Man Saturn is strong and powerful in its home sign, Capricorn. The planet of time, structure, foundations and karma travels through serious Capricorn until December, 2020. Reality bites, reality rules, and we must all try to work with Saturn and become more down-to-earth and practical during these years.

*Saturn in Capricorn is one of several astrological signs that a critical financial sea-change is afoot. It favours banking regulations, tax initiatives, and restrictions of various kinds in the stock markets. Saturn in Capricorn is an old-fashioned banker who respects rules and structure. And Saturn in Capricorn is not impressed by cunning tax avoidance schemes – legal or otherwise – either.

*Saturn in Capricorn symbolises the rocks beneath our feet and the great mountain ranges of the world. So we could see more news – and more discoveries – about mining, minerals, fracking, caves, fossil fuels, and tectonic plates. Along with Uranus in Taurus, it represents a time when we move towards taking practical steps towards conserving resources, and taking care of the Earth itself.

*Saturn in Capricorn describes old age – and encourages a focus on older people and their care – and perhaps considers their ability to contribute to society as well.

*Saturn in Capricorn loves history and tradition, and is conservative and cautious by nature.

We’ll all feel this shift. The cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn approach an important two-year phase. And if you have planets, angles, or points between 0 and 11 degrees in your own personal horoscope, you will experience a Saturn transit – or the start of one – this year.

People, organisations, and nations who were born with Saturn in Capricorn will be having, or approaching, their Saturn return – an important time of added responsibility, assessment of what’s real, and often a leaving behind of what isn’t working out.

Saturn was in Capricorn:

December 1929 – November 1932

January 1959 – January 1962

February 1988 – February 1991

Saturn in Capricorn will be active in many world horoscopes. Here’s a few that will experience a visit from the down-to-earth Time Lord himself in 2018:

A Saturn return is coming up for:

Palestine
Thailand
Australia
Hungary
Latvia

And in 2018 Saturn sternly crosses the Sun in these horoscopes:

Libya
Indonesia
Lebanon
United Kingdom
Czech Republic
Australia
Slovakia
The European Union
The Euro

Testing times are in store, realism is required.

2) The Electric Earth: Uranus in Taurus 2018 – 2026

Uranus enters Taurus on 15th May, 2018.

A new era for invention, revolution, originality and science is dawning. And like an electrical storm, this theme will flicker at first. Between November 2018 and March, 2019 we get a re-run of late 2017 and early 2018 as Uranus backtracks for the very last time into Aries.

But the changes signalled by Uranus in Taurus begin this year. What’s brewing?

Uranus in Taurus combines the stubborn, earthy, security-minded qualities of Taurus with Uranus, the eternal disruptor. What does security mean to us? We will be asking ourselves this question many times during the passage of Uranus through Taurus between 2018 and 2026.

There’s much tension between freedom (Uranus) and security (Taurus) throughout this period. Some of this will manifest in questions about our possessions and what we value – Taurus tends to accumulate ‘stuff’, Uranus likes to feel unencumbered. Have we reached ‘peak stuff’? Some of us will prefer to enjoy the pleasures of Taurean experiencesinstead – delicious food, sensuous scents, gardens and nature, colour and texture.

I think Uranus in Taurus means we’ll see incredibly significant changes financially, for Taurus is a financial sign. Uranus favours revolution, so this signals a notable financial revolution – likely to include the growth and acceptance of cyber currencies, such as Bitcoin and others, yet to be invented.

Disruptions to the Earth itself may be dramatic – earthquakes and other natural upheavals, such as volcanic eruptions, could increase now, and onwards towards 2026. Green energy sources and inventions will gain in affordability and popularity.

Uranus in Taurus could signal amazing discoveries about our planet, it’s structure and it’s energy patterns – particularly electromagnetic energies within the Earth itself, and those beaming in from outer space. We’ll learn much more about geomagnetic forces, cosmic rays, and natural radiation during Uranus in Taurus years.

Similarly, there will be exciting discoveries about our five – or even six – senses, our physical bodies, and more secrets about our DNA. Some of these discoveries are likely to relate to our own electromagnetic qualities, and how we respond to electricity and magnetism in all their forms in our environment. Everything is connected as we plug into our planet.

Art, music, and fashion will be disrupted and refreshed in original, unusual ways during the Uranus in Taurus era. The use of electricity and lasers in beauty treatments will gain widespread popularity.

Inventive ways to address the global housing crisis will arise. All kinds of original and eccentric community-based housing projects and independent movements will have an opportunity to develop. They will disrupt our ideas about what’s possible and what’s practical. We’ll experiment with unusual building materials, too.
The last time Uranus was in Taurus (1934-1942) the UK saw a massive housing boom during the mid to late 1930’s. Much of suburbia was created then. The UK itself (1st January, 1801) has active Mars in Taurus in the 8th house of legacies, trine sober Sun in Capricorn in the 4th house of home and roots. Uranus came along and stimulated taking much-needed action on housing. We live with that legacy today.

All these themes will develop between 2018 – 2026.  If you have planets, angles or points between 0 – 2 degrees in your own personal horoscope, you’ll feel this restless, inventive influence this year. Late degrees, and birthdays at the end of a sign, are also stimulated again. This is the beginning of a pivotal period for all the fixed signs – Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.

Uranus was last in Taurus from June-October 1934, then April 1935-May 1942.

World horoscopes feeling the force of Uranus in Taurus in 2018 include:

France (1792)
The UK House of Commons
The office of President of the United States
The Vatican City

There are many more locations worth watching, with planets in Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. Uranian unrest, disruption, and upheaval seems likely in Russia, Eastern Europe and the Baltic States in 2018, for example.

3) Power and Mysticism – Jupiter’s 2018 journey

2018 is full of practicality and major financial themes and dramas. But there’re also a bewitching, imaginative possibilities. Expansive Jupiter in mysterious, watery Scorpio is involved with both stories.

Finances loom large this year. And when Jupiter meets powerful plutocrat Pluto, we’ll see a few more juicy secrets emerge. Follow the money! Pluto also rules the secret services, so major news featuring behind-the-scenes activities is more than likely.

This planetary pair are also very helpful for projects involving charities, regeneration schemes, recycling and cleansing operations, foreign trade and investments – and building up power and influence.

In your own horoscope, Jupiter sextile Pluto in 2018 offers a confidence boost, and possibility of increasing your success, influence, knowledge, and financial security. It’s particularly helpful for the Earth and Water signs – Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces.

Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces are also opening up a portal – a gateway into a beguiling world of mystery, imagination, and spirituality. Some of us will seek out a less materialistic view of life, others will want to explore psychic awareness, use their intuition, or study what’s unknown, and unseen in the world around us. Some of this may find a conventional religious outlet, some of it manifests in a more open-minded attitude towards the paranormal, supernatural, and the powers of the mind. This connection favours music, art, healing, film, magic, and fantastical bohemian designs.

To make the most of this influence, we’ll have to decide to work with it. Otherwise we’ll simply melt into some kind of delectable, blissed-out haze, and miss out on some glimmering inspirations. The elves and pixies are waiting!

The downside of Jupiter and Neptune manifests in confusion, deception, delusion, and disappointment. So when this potentially magical influence comes along, do be very aware of financial scams and bogus spiritual gurus or romantic admirers.

Jupiter and Neptune work beautifully on an expansive creative, spiritual level – but can denote massive financial bubbles, dubious investments, and dangerous false optimism when manifesting on a practical level.  Plus, I’m sure this pair of planets will delight in some steamy scandal mongering in 2018. Neptune, in particular, is always associated with scandals.

Jupiter in Scorpio is trine Neptune in Pisces:

3rd December, 2017 at 11 degrees

25th May, 2018 at 16 degrees

19th August, 2018 at 15 degrees

These are the days when the aspect is exact. The flavour and meaning are swirling about from December to autumn, 2018.

Jupiter in Scorpio is sextile Pluto in Capricorn:

16th January, 2018 at 19 degrees

14th April, 2018 at 21 degrees

12th September at 18 degrees

As you can see, this powerful duo is around for much of 2018. These dates are for the exact link, but the atmosphere and energy of this connection is around from January until October.

4) Lover, Come Back, and Other Stories: Mars and Venus Retrograde in 2018

Both Venus and Mars have retrograde phases in 2018. This highlights our relationships, finances, and ability to move things along. Between them, Mars and Venus vitalise the signs of Capricorn and Aquarius (Mars), and Libra and Scorpio (Venus). The big message seems to be about wanting to begin things, and to stabilise them – but our best-laid plans will turn out to have many twists and turns this year.

Mars, planet of action and desire, will slow us down and ask us to rethink our proposed actions in the summer of 2018.

Mars will spend a big chunk of time in humanitarian, geeky Aquarius and practical, ambitious Capricorn this year. Any planets you have in your own personal horoscope that meet up with Mars will be switched on in ways you’ll likely notice more than usual, as Mars passes back and forth over them. Projects begun in the spring will need to be reviewed or stalled during the summer months. Progress can be made in the autumn.

Mars enters down-to-earth Capricorn on 17th March, 2018.

Mars enters Aquarius on 16th May, 2018.

Mars turns retrograde in early Aquarius on 26th June, 2018, backtracking into late Capricorn again on 13th August, 2018.

Mars turns forward in Capricorn on 27th August.

Mars returns to Aquarius once more on 11th September, 2018 – finally leaving for Pisces on 15th November, 2018.

When Mars is retrograde it’s a positive and helpful time to reconsider things. Beginning a new project or intimate relationship can be slowed up by circumstances outside our control. Aggressive actions can backfire during a retrograde phase – traditionally, this would be a bad time to attack an enemy, and perhaps not a helpful time to begin divorce proceedings, or other legal actions. So take it easy, if you can, between late June and late August – this phase will need caution, patience, and a willingness to wait until the right opportunity appears.

Venus will be rewinding in early Scorpio and late Libra. Throughout the late summer and on into the winter of 2018we’re thinking about sex, relationships, and alliances even more than usual. There’ll be some fascinating love stories, reunions, and break-ups as the planet of love spends months expressing herself through Scorpio’s sexual passion and Libra’s deep need for partnerships.

Money, art, beauty, social life, and finances are also in high focus between August and January.

Venus enters Libra, her home sign, on 6th August, 2018

Venus enters Scorpio on 9th September, 2018

Venus turns retrograde in Scorpio on 5th October, 2018

Venus returns to late Libra on Halloween, 31st October, 2018

Venus turns direct in late Libra on 16th November, 2018

Venus returns to Scorpio on 2nd December, 2018, travelling through Scorpio until 7th January, 2019.

When Venus is rewinding between October and November, we want to revisit the past in love, art, and money matters. Sometimes the past decides to visit us, and old friends and lovers return or lost art and jewellery is discovered.

If you have planets at early degrees in the fixed signs – Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius – or in the last degrees of cardinal Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn – both Venus and Mars will be making their presence felt in your personal horoscope in 2018.  This could be a memorable year for your artistic side, and your romantic life.

5) Special dates for your Moon Diary in 2018

Super Moon: 2nd January at 11 degrees of Cancer.

A Super Moon, overflowing in its own sign, Cancer, promises a deeply emotional start to 2018. There’s an oceanic feeling to this Moon – it flows with watery Neptune in Pisces and Mars in Scorpio – but is prevented from floating away completely by the Sun and Venus in Capricorn. Certainly we can expect high tides on the seas, and in our own hearts and minds too. This Moon’s signature is definitely ‘tears before bedtime’.

Micro New Moon: 17th January at 26 degrees of Capricorn.

This new Moon is at apogee – that is, at a point where it is farthest away from us here on Earth on its monthly journey. This could well be the most unemotional new Moon of 2018 – favouring practical intentions and New Year clear-outs.

Blue Moon, Super Moon: 31st January.

This Blue Moon is also a Lunar Eclipse at 11 degrees Leo. And it’s a Super Moon, so those lunar vibes are intense.  High tides and stormy weather are very likely both out in our world, and inside our hearts and minds.
This eclipse is visible in North America, Eastern Asia, across the Pacific Ocean, and in Australia. These regions – where the eclipse is visible – are more likely to see manifestations of the eclipse and it’s meaning, according to traditional astrology.

February:

There’s no full Moon in February.
New Moon and Solar Eclipse: 15th February.
This partial Solar Eclipse is at 27 degrees of Aquarius.
This eclipse is visible in Chile, Antarctica, and Argentina.

Blue Moon: 31st March.

This full Moon rises at 10 degrees Libra.

Two Blue Moons in a year is unusual. A Blue Moon is the second full Moon to rise in one calendar month – this year we have Blue Moons in January and March, signalling an increase in emotions and volatility here on Earth.

Summer’s Eclipse Season
When an eclipse stimulates your horoscope you can anticipate changes and important developments. Generally, a lunar eclipse brings inner shifts, while a solar eclipse flags up events in the world around you, or actions you take. Sometimes these changes begin to form at least a month beforehand. Eclipses both conceal and reveal. During eclipse season it’s wise to keep options open whenever possible – you may not see the full story or have all the facts you need until later.

Summer 2018 has the planet of action and forward movement, Mars, reversing throughout eclipse season in July and August, and Mercury retrograde in August. So I think it’s crystal clear that, one way or another, summer’s astrology says – whoa! Revise, reverse, rethink, and dig about in the archives for best results at that time. It really does all look somewhat bonkers.

Super New Moon: 13th July.
This new Moon is at the closest point to the Earth in its monthly journey. Today we have a potent, brooding partial Solar Eclipse at 20 degrees Cancer.
This eclipse will be visible in South Australia and Antarctica.

A total Lunar Eclipse.
This rusty, blood-hued Lunar Eclipse is visible in Europe, Africa, western and central Asia, across the Indian Ocean, and in western Australia on 27th – 28th July. This eclipse is at 4 degrees of Aquarius. Given clear skies, it will be something worth seeing.

Super New Moon: 11th August.
This is a Partial Solar Eclipse at 18 degrees of royal Leo. It’s the final eclipse of 2018.
This partial solar eclipse is visible in northern Russia, northern Europe, north-eastern Canada, Greenland, and northern and eastern Asia. Traditional astrology says that these regions are more likely to experience the manifestations of the eclipse and its meanings.

Dark Stars: Horoscopes for January 2018

by Jane Lyle

From The Astrology Room

ARIES
Is there confusion or domestic chaos at home? Blame it on the New Year’s full Moon. Yet, somewhere there’s a lunar message for you from your very own subconscious mind. And what your inner spirit has to say will prove to be useful and enlightening as you step forward into an ambitious 2018. Helpful clues and energising conversations guide you during these early January days – women could be particularly supportive and helpful to you now. A powerful new Moon on 17th January finds you restless and eager to make changes – possibly startling changes – to your well-established aims and dreams. This has been cooking up in your psyche for quite a while, and your choices may unsettle some of those who know you well. You can sociably smooth over any awkward atmospheres after the Sun enters Aquarius on the 20th, plus Mars in Sagittarius (26th) lightens things up even more. Seize playful moments and enjoy yourself – overall, you’re now on the threshold of a much more responsible, hard-working two-year phase. You’ll achieve a lot, but don’t neglect love, balance and harmony.

TAURUS
You’re on the brink of a very interesting, fulfilling year. Do you fancy studying something seriously, or dream of working abroad? While frivolous travel may disappoint, travel in pursuit of something more substantial offers intriguing possibilities.  So do watch for hot news from far away around the new Moon on the 17th, and in the days that follow. For others, there’ll be changes in and around your home and family, involving a move for some of you. Whatever is happening, you’re beginning to see things from a fresh point of view, and your emerging hopes and dreams may surprise you. January and February bring pivotal eclipses in Leo and Aquarius, giving you plenty to think about as the year begins. It’s very much a time to keep your options open, and see what – and who – crops up, whether that’s offers of work, romance, friendship or shared creative projects. The first two weeks of January are looking especially lively. Your innate fondness for security isn’t going away, but it will be shaken and stirred this year – and that can bring a renewed sense of freedom and vitality, along with a few nervous shudders.

GEMINI
Some subtle, or not so subtle, changes are afoot. You’re finally free from Saturn in Sagittarius, which has kept your partnerships at work and in your personal world stable – or ended some of them altogether in the past couple of years. Now you’re more open to unusual ideas, or creative conversations with quirky people. It feels good to let your mind roam freely, and all manner of things could inspire you this month. You may even rediscover just how much you still have in common with someone you’ve taken for granted. Do keep a very cautious eye on your money though, particularly any financial commitments or projects you share with others. Information may not be reliable, or missing altogether. So treat what emerges towards the end of January and in February with great care, and don’t be tempted to splash out or lend money you could do with yourself.

CANCER
January promises to be quite a month for you, the lunar star of the zodiac. There are two full Moons – the first one is in your own sign on January 2nd. Your emotions and intuition are at a New Year peak, bringing surges of visionary knowledge and romantic love. This month is full of constructive potential, particularly the first ten days. So if you want to begin a new project or establish a new relationship – make a move. Around 7th January, when Mars and Jupiter meet in Scorpio, is fortunate, high-energy moment for love, luck, and creativity. Then mid-January brings the powerful, transformative engine of Jupiter and Pluto into your world – another key moment when life can be reinvigorated. For some of you, this comes through developments in the life of a partner or close friend – their news heralds important changes for you, too. This is a big theme for 2018 anyway, for with Saturn now in Capricorn, your longstanding partnerships at work and in your personal life are highlighted – there’s more commitment for some of them, while other connections are leaving your life over the next couple of years.

LEO
You may be tucked up in your cosy nest as the year begins. But your imagination soaring, and conversations with young people or children look especially inspiring or uplifting. Everyday rituals and routines sustain you now, and on into 2018 when taking good care of yourself and creating balance in your life is a priority. Your home and family are a wonderful source of good feelings or even luck this year – and entertaining more at home is another happy possibility. Exciting changes are brewing in your career too, and although you may not be able to figure out what’s going on yet, you’ll sense it in your dreams. In the immediate future, eclipses in Leo (31st January) and Aquarius (15th February) stir up your world, and the way you see it. For some of you, a new relationship could be surprising and heart-warming. For others, rediscovering something you’ve studied and almost forgotten, has much more to offer in terms of adventure, practical developments, and shared endeavours. No need to firm things up just yet, an open mind and heart is all you need.

VIRGO
The first ten days of January are full of cosmic support for you and your New Year dreams. Although there may be some emotional chaos to deal with early this month, there’s also a pleasing run of luck and positive energy to help you step forward into 2018. Between the 6th – 10th January is particularly potent, and an excellent time for romance, social life, communications, and charming the birds from the trees. A Capricorn new Moon on the 17th would be a positive time for making any new year’s resolutions – but try to be flexible, your views and desires may have shifted when you weren’t looking. It’s helpful to spend some time thinking about what you want, rather than what you think you’re supposed to want or need. Saturn has now left your home and family zone, so you’ll begin to see certain things freeing up or changing as the weeks pass. Creating and committing to something lasting is shaping up to be your main future focus – whether that’s romance, having a child, or designing an amazing garden.  Cultivate your inner zen master, and allow things to develop at their own pace.

LIBRA
What do you value in your life? For some of you, the answer to this question has changed in recent years. Now it’s all in focus again, as planets emphasise home and family, love, and what’s in your personal treasure chest. Yes, money matters – and some excellent opportunities to improve your financial situation should become clear in the first two weeks of January. There may be a spot of money luck – you might discover something valuable in your home, or find a bargain at a car boot sale. But, as you already know, money isn’t the whole story. Saturn, now in Capricorn, will be bringing more responsibilities and decisions involving your home, and close family members in 2018. Your own family story, ancestors, and parents will be important – it’s a good year to ask yourself ‘what have I learned from them?’. What you discover illuminates the way forward, step by step. Towards the end of the month you’ll get a lot out of chatty get-togethers, writing, and communicating in general. Take any inevitable changes in your charming stride – and prepare for a lively February.

SCORPIO
Communication is the key to success as January begins, so if there’s something you need to get across you can speak up with confidence now. The intensely watery full Moon on 2nd January could bring a surge of powerful emotions, and prompts you to look back at the past. But Jupiter and Mars in Scorpio are working together during January’s first ten days – your actions and choices at this time are full of stunning potential, and you can attract luck and support. There’s no need to overdo anything, remember sometimes less is more. As the weeks pass, eclipse season approaches. These eclipses on 31st January and 15th February emphasise important developments in your career and ambitions, and for your home and family. It’s a strong theme that began in 2017 – and many of you have already sensed, or seen, changes. You haven’t got all the information you need yet, and will have to trust your own superb instincts and play a waiting game. But with Jupiter in Scorpio your ability to feel optimistic is boosted, and your positive attitude attracts happy coincidences and good fortune.

SAGITTARIUS
You’re inching your way towards a more soulful, creative year. But don’t underestimate what you’ve already achieved, for all your hard work over recent years has been very worthwhile – even if you sometimes doubt this. Some unexpected news, or a sudden flash of inspiration early in January lightens your mood and reveals new possibilities. If you’re worrying about your finances, try to step back a bit and consider taking some practical action. Once Mars enters Sagittarius on 26th, you’ll be keen to move forwards – an energetic phase that lasts until mid-March. Bear in mind that certain long-established things in your life, or at home, seem to be confusing or muddled. But if you can shift your attitudes and point of view, you’ll find a way of coasting along instead of getting stressed or bewildered. Your amazing ability to sense trends, or tune in to your own subconscious, is strengthened this year – and can bring you much luck, joy and fulfilment if you can let go of rigid old ideas or expectations. They can safely be chucked into the dustbin of history.

CAPRICORN
Well this truly is your season! January begins with four planets in Capricorn, emphasising your sign and its dynamic, earthy qualities. The powerful full Moon in Cancer on 2nd January, highlights some emotional times with your partner or close colleagues. But beautiful aspects in January’s first couple of weeks mean that you’ve got lots of support and encouragement, and any group projects you’re involved with are looking very good indeed. Both luck and romantic feelings are also linked with groups of people, and your own inimitable charm means you’ll be in much demand this month. Saturn, your ruler, is now in Capricorn until 2020. It’s an outstanding opportunity to refine things, to make commitments, and create lasting achievements. You’ll be working hard – you may have to make sure that your serious, driven side doesn’t completely take over. So don’t forget to include music, creativity, and your more soulful self in any New Year’s resolutions you make. And why not make space for a few surprises too? You know what they say about all work and no play.

AQUARIUS
The weeks just before your birthday month are always a productive time for reflection on the past year. This year you’re sensing the approach of two eclipses – one in Leo (31st) and the other in Aquarius on 15th February. Eclipses stir things up by revealing and concealing information. So a spot of pondering should be even more helpful than usual – and wise Aquarians will hold off on making hard-and-fast decisions too early in the New Year. In any event, January’s first two weeks bring pleasing news, plus one or two interesting invitations or offers to amuse you. Certainly, if you’re involved in any form of education, or your work needs you to travel, these weeks look very promising. Once the Sun joins Venus in Aquarius, after 20th January, your mood lifts and your ability to impress others, or attract what you need, is enhanced. This promises to be a memorable year for you, with energetic Mars in and out of Aquarius for months from May until November. Take the long view now, and you’ll be well-placed to make the very most of the year ahead.

PISCES
You’ve got all sorts of choices to make as 2018 begins. But first, you’re floating along on the silvery tides of a spectacular full Moon in Cancer that opens the year for us all on the 2nd. Inspiration flows, and that loving feeling could overwhelm you, especially if it links to the past. As the lunar tides ebb away, a productive phase awaits. If your plans include study, travel, creative writing or raising your profile in some way – do take full advantage of January’s first couple of weeks. Unexpected help and luck are highlighted – and you could discover an interesting way to boost income or increase self-confidence. Your two ruling planets, Jupiter and Neptune, are working together for much of this year – with outstanding potential for your hopes and ambitions. Your charisma is seductive, and your spidey senses are tingling. Do avoid getting involved with ‘get-rich-quick’ schemes – they’re more than likely to end in disappointment or even loss. So why not channel energy into love and creativity instead? Refreshing your dreams brings fulfilment this year.

Your Weekly Love Horoscopes for January 8

by Sarah Bartlett.

From The Astrology Room

Mars and Jupiter in intense Scorpio may be causing emotional dramas and careless loving, but stern Saturn in reminding us that we have to be true to our beliefs too.

Follow the road that is clear in your head this week, and forget any silly ideals or other people’s expectations. Then, in the weeks to come, you will find that it was worth the effort to stick to your convictions.

ARIES

This new year, will be bumping into fascinating new characters if single, and if attached, you begin to let your partner know that you may be unpredictable, but you are also full of depth, desire and love. It’s time to unleash all those feelings, and let someone know that you’re a human being too.

TAURUS

You’re now on the road to a deeper, more true and joyous kind of loving without giving up on your independence. You are generous, loving and loyal, but don’t rob your partner their right to be individual either. Trust works both ways, so trust in that, and then you won’t feel you need to own someone, just love them.

GEMINI

Although one partner or admirer seems to be more interested in themselves than in your plans, don’t take it personally. If you’re getting out and about, and they’re working like demons, then you’re right to do your own thing. In a few weeks time they will see that your laid back attitude may appear to be merely a philosophical way to look at love and life, but it works.

CANCER

Since the recent full moon in your sign, you may still be filled with mixed feelings about leaving the past behind.  ‘Moving on’ has become in vogue. We are expected to get on with our lives, and live for the future. But think carefully, after all, the past will never catch up with who you will be tomorrow, will it?

LEO

Sometimes life feels like an empty shell. Your fears and longings seem to take up your waking moments, the negative thoughts impossible to escape, the positive ones, well, seemingly impossible – yet they are not. This week it’s time to fill your life with love for yourself and the universe, then the beneficial changes will begin.

VIRGO

Time to put an end to stupid over-thinking in the love department. However, the only thing which may hinder you is your stubborn mind. Luckily, Mercury’s move into Capricorn will bring you a breath of fresh air, and you realise that things are about to change for the better.

LIBRA

This week, be honest about what you want. It’s often what we don’t say that gets taken the wrong way. If you really believe that your love life needs a little tender loving care, then there’s no time like the present to do so. This week, you really have no excuse but to say to someone what you really want, and romance will truly blossom.

SCORPIO

Pretending you don’t care isn’t the answer. In fact, you need to make it clear to your partner or someone new if single, that your independence is sacred, but you do have feelings. It’s also timely to ask yourself a question:  do you love your life enough to change it? If the answer is yes, then the planets are giving you carte blanche to do so.

SAGITTARIUS

You know what you must give up in order to be who you truly are and want to be. If you understand this part of yourself and see how you can climb the ladder to relationship happiness, then another part of you will have to be relinquished. Whether that’s a lifestyle, habit, people or attitude, you are about to go through a massively important but positive transformation.

CAPRICORN

Thanks to the recent full moon in your opposite sign, at last you can take every day as it comes and resist trying to organize it into little boxes. This week, you’re also ready to relax and take a more laid-back approach to life. If single, suddenly it seems you’re in demand again. Funny, isn’t it, how, as soon as you stop trying to hard, you end up being desired?

AQUARIUS

It’s getting to a point where there’s not so much a lack of love, but a feeling you’re missing out on something romantic and unforgettable. In fact, you are beginning to wonder if all that stuff about couples and long term commitment is all it’s cracked up to be. Isn’t there more? Luckily, there is.

PISCES

This week, you really do want to have your say and get it out of your system. But take a long hard look at what you are getting miffed about. Is it simply that the truth often does hurt, and you need to defend yourself? Be kindly to your lover or admirer, and they will be gentle with you too.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday 8th January

 Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From the Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Don’t say sorry if you don’t mean it Aries, as your face is giving away more of your thoughts than you may realise. If you can make more time for family this week, then you will find out the truth behind Christmas hints.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Be patient with family and friends, who may be finding your fast pace a little too much for them over the course of January. You would be far better to let others lead the way and to talk this week.
GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
Are you really being left out, or are you making yourself the odd one out? This is a question only you can answer. Just remember, that if you push others for a reaction, you are going to get your fingers burnt.
CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
Little hints given by close ones seem to have been ignored by you. Did you do this on purpose, or can you really not see the changes those you love want and need? Happy times link to you saying yes to impromptu invites.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
You don’t care about everybody else, you just want to spend your time with the person you can’t get off of your mind. However, they seem oblivious to the urgency of your request. Stick to plans so they see you have a life of your own too.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
Money matters come to the fore and you may find yourself being forced to pay out cash you didn’t think was your responsibility. Talk don’t shout to find some middle ground. There is an imbalance in relationships today you need to rectify.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
Lies have been told and quite a few of them. Because of this, you are not quite sure what is fact and what is fiction. What you do know and will continue to be confident about, is who can and cannot be trusted.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
You’re feeling the need to talk with a close one, to get all your worries off your chest. However, they feel more inclined to talk about anything but what’s on your mind. Luckily tonight sees you both able to find common ground.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Don’t let others’ moods drag you down, but move onwards and upwards. You have put too much hard work and effort into things since Christmas to do anything else my friend. Animals lead to some interesting introductions.
CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Life has been either a daring adventure or boring for you. There has been no in between. Today you get to restore some balance and harmony. Don’t waste your energies on those you know won’t compromise.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
Try not to nit-pick at what others say, instead get on with the plans you had made for yourself in the days ahead. A new way to blow off steam can be found by invitations you accept for the upcoming weekend.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
A really childish feel to your stars could see you being annoying on purpose. Know how far is too far to go my friend, as a certain union in your life has taken as much pressure as it can handle.

spinjewelstar

If You Were Born Today, January 8

You have a strong sense of purpose and responsibility. You easily feel guilty and are often found weighing pros and cons, as you are able to see both sides to any situation. While you are sensitive and naturally retiring, you are also very aware of your reputation and image, and you will rise to most challenges. Others might not know that you have a competitive streak, and you can be quite stubborn. Famous people born today: Elvis Presley, David Bowie, Stephen Hawking, Soupy Sales, Sarah Polley.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

Your birthday occurs around a Third Quarter Moon this year, and you are reaching an important turning point in terms of personal growth. You may be more emotional this year, and should watch for unnecessary conflicts and making hasty decisions as a result. Otherwise, this is a year of greater understanding and a strong desire to take care of business. This should be a busy, dynamic period in your life.

Jupiter transits in harmony with your Sun this year, and you have a stronger than usual desire to improve, grow, and learn. This is a fortunate aspect that helps boost optimism and confidence, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests can be especially strong. It’s a strong time to further your education. You are likely to enjoy a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses.

Career and life path matters may seem to magically fall into place, taking you in a direction that fits.

You have tremendous enterprising spirit this year, attracting strong opportunities on both professional and personal levels. You are able to see the “big picture”, which helps you plan effectively. You have significantly more courage and gumption, making the year ahead a standout one in which you are ready to try new things and take on challenges.

You’re also quite driven to make improvements and effect positive change in the year ahead. This positively impacts many areas of your life beyond the personal, including relationships and work.

This can be a good time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease. Wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year.

You have a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn this year, with opportunities emerging to match. Optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve this year. Your social life will likely increase and bring you in contact with helpful people. Travel opportunities are likely. Pinnacle successes can occur during this period – for example, publishing an important project, graduating, marrying, having a child, getting a promotion, and so forth. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests proceed smoothly. It’s a good time to seek out advanced training or to further your education. You are likely to enjoy good humor, optimism, and a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.

Personal magnetism is tremendous this year. You are playfully competitive and might win a major competition, if applicable. This is a good period for creative projects and joining with others in the pursuit of a common goal.

This can be a year in which you are bolder, more assertive, and energetic. You are especially interested in setting goals and challenges for yourself this year, and taking the necessary action to meet them. You may meet or interact with others who encourage or inspire you in some way to have more confidence in yourself.

Your passions and enthusiasm run high in the period ahead, and you find it natural to channel this extra energy constructively. This is an excellent year for enterprising endeavors and new interests, but equally as potent for relationships and creativity. You’re drawn instinctively to certain projects that have long-term value. It can be an especially creative, tuned-in year for self-expression, not only verbally but through hobbies, games, or sports.

2018 is a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is generally not as active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract what–and who–you want into your life now. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect, develop, build, and attract.

2019 will be a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It’s likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.

Get A Jump on Tomorrow…

Your Horoscopes for Tuesday, January 9th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

The Astrology Room

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
If you believe in your dreams this week, then others will too Aries. You have spent far too much time doing what others thought was right, rather than what was in your heart. Time for change. Starting today.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Stop worrying about what might happen and instead put your time and efforts into what is happening. It would be far more advantageous to use today to tie up loose ends than to start new beginnings.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
The secret of getting ahead is getting started. You learn this by the way the success you get when you attempt to actually do things, rather than just thinking about doing them. Careful of what you sign today. Forms are not as flexible as you think.
`
CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
Were your actions dramatic and childish, or were they a cry for help? You begin to calm down from today and to look at things from a clearer angle. You see what and who was making you ill and work out how to put things right.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Think before you speak, as you could be revealing words which will only make your cause a harder one to fight. A better atmosphere in the home comes from you showing a more relaxed attitude to what others do.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
The need to see someone who is important to you could see you telling white lies to those you’d already made commitments to. Better to tell the truth according to Saturn,

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
Being nice to all you meet can go a long way to how you are judged. Try to be nicer to yourself as well. Giving yourself such a hard time over events which were out of your control can only be your undoing.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Someone you didn’t think you would see again is back and they seem to have more time for you. Could this be a compatible match? It seems so if you would just slow your pace and allow yourself to have some fun.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
You’ve changed! You’ve had to do a lot of growing up over the last few months. The good news is that you’ve come out of it all a bigger and better person. Jealousy in the workplace is your enemy. Reign it in! Ring now so I can help you priorities.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
An end to a situation has had a knock-on effect to your life. You may not realise it, but time is the best healer, so try to give yourself some more time to think about how you feel after all you’ve been through.
AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
I know you are angry about something which didn’t work out, but you do have other choices now and they’re good ones. You seem to be facing an issue over which side you should show loyalty to in a split. You don’t have to choose, do you?

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Careful who you tell your secrets to. Many of the signs are speaking for the sake of it. Why not try keeping information you want private between only you and those involved. It’s sure to lead to a far more confident feel to your week.

Your Daily Tarot Card for January 8

The Moon

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keywords: imagination, dreams, emotion, competition (the dogs), illusion!

Astrological Correspondence: Pisces

The Moon in all its phases represents the world of dreams, illusions, and the subconscious. Traditionally the symbol of the feminine, the card’s meaning encompasses the maternal, the Great Mother, womanhood, and cycles. The Moon is an ambivalent card, and its imagery signifies the difficulty to see things clearly: simultaneously inspiring and lacking courage, enchanting and bewildering, deceptive and receptive – all sides of the same coin. Signaling fluctuating moods and uncertainty we must pay attention to our dreams, confront our subconscious and deal with the issues that come to the surface in order to progress to a higher level of awareness. Being able to put our imagination and creative talents to good use is an added bonus. Negative qualities such as ambiguity, confusion, hidden fears, and deception can be causes for failure.

spinjewelstar

 

Your Daily Love Tarot Card for January 8

The Sun

 

 

 

 

 

The Sun is an invitation to a supportive relationship in which you can be yourself around your significant other. You feel relaxed and loved, with a sense of peace of heart. You’ve struck gold and entered into a new realm. Keep looking if this is not how you feel because it is how things should be. You can’t expect improvement in a long-term union if you do not take effective steps to create it.

Your Erotic Tarot Card for Monday, January 8

The High Priestess

Now that you can finally breathe a sigh of relief, your sex life will feel revitalized. Everything isn’t perfect, but the positive factors far outweigh the negative ones, and you’re feeling sexually free to explore new and exciting options. Sexual balance is high on your priority list, so go out there and find the erotic yin to your yang.

It denotes a time to let lose of grievances and settle conflicts in a way that benefits all parties equally.

This Weekend’s Love Horoscope: Let’s Get Serious

Your love horoscope for the weekend of December 22-24


Matters of the heart become more practical this weekend as Saturn’s move into Capricorn begins to hit your love life. Serious Saturn is finally back in its home sign — the last time Saturn was here was almost 27 years ago! — and will have you craving a more committed, lasting love. You may find yourself analyzing the foundations of your current or potential relationships now, to see if they’ll hold up in the long-run. Do you two have the same goals and values? Do your schedules work well together? Do you want the same things in love? If you don’t know these answers right away, it’s OK! You’ll have the next 2 1/2 years to throw these thoughts around while Saturn is in rational Capricorn.

But Saturn’s not the only planet adding a serious vibe to the weekend. The Sun has just entered Capricorn, too, and love-planet Venus will move into Capricorn on Monday. Careful Capricorn is known for being ambitious in the most practical way, and when it comes to matters of the heart, the steady Mountain Goat wants an enduring, consistent relationship with a solid foundation. These energies will leak into your love life this weekend, further encouraging you to assess the sturdiness of your current situation, and look for a practical partner with long-term goals.

Don’t worry though, it’s not all heavy news! Mercury Retrograde ends on Friday and our communicative powers will start to return. Say goodbye to the continuous misunderstandings that you and your partner or crush have been enduring. Let the right words flow as conversations between you and your lover significantly improve. You’ll be able to get a clear perspective on your love life this weekend. Ask yourself some tough love questions — you might be surprised by your heart’s answers.

The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Are you excited about Christmas Aries? You should be. What you didn’t know last year but do now, is that life is for living and that no one can stop an Aries from doing what they want to do.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Don’t let them tame you Taurus, but work on being the best version of you there can be this Christmas month. Time spent telling tales on others is wasted. Try to work on bringing who you love together for next week.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun, but that doesn’t mean that you have to do what you don’t want to. Relationships come under the spotlight and you find it possible to make peace with someone from your past.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
Unexpected gifts or acts of kindness come your way and you begin to see who is on your side and who has been working against you. Make time for an older face you have been ignoring. They have news you’ll want to hear!

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Slow down in relationships my friend, or you are going to end up missing all the fun. If you can pay more attention to the simple things in life, then you will be in with a chance of finding what true happiness means.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
Try not to hesitate when you are asked questions this week, instead try to speak from the heart. It’s how you will find out who you really are and what you really want.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
The stars bring out a more psychic side to your nature and you find it possible to make amends in situations which you were just about ready to give up on. Time spent on facts and figures can save you money and reputation.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Of course it hurts if you lay your heart on the line and it gets stamped on. What you have to realise from here on in though, is that if you place your emotions before those who are not worthy, of course they’ll take advantage.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Travel is well starred and any trips you make to see those you love between now and the New Year will be greatly appreciated and enjoyed. Being on time tonight can make all the difference to a yes or no answer.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Go slow with new relationships in your life which are taking shape. It would be in your interests to let others speak while you listen. It can show you a way of living which may be a better path for you.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
There is a naughty feel to your chart which could well see you saying and doing things that could upset the coming Christmas week. Know how far is too far to go. You’ve worked too hard to fall back now.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
There is an immature feel to your chart which could see you saying and doing things just to get a reaction from those who have upset you. Be stronger than that and remember you’re a Pisces. Talking about what you really want today moves mountains.

 

If You Were Born Today, December 22

You are an emotional person who is very connected to your past. You are exceptionally giving and supportive, sometimes to the point of martyrdom! You have to try not to feel resentful for all that you do for others by keeping this trait in balance. You would make an excellent counselor. Your love life is likely very changeful. You are extremely hard-working and few can do the job as well as you. Sometimes you are impatient with others who don’t seem to have the same work ethic as you, but you must understand that few do! You can be a perfectionist. You are a wonderful combination of conservative and creative or inspired. Famous people born today: Diane Sawyer, Vanessa Paradis, Robin Gibb, Maurice Gibb, Ralph Fiennes.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

With the Sun and Moon in a waxing semi-square at the time of your birthday this year, the period ahead is one of new initiatives and action. You possess quite a bit of energy, but you must be aware that emotions color much of what you do this year. It can be hard to be objective as a result.

This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.

Transiting Uranus forms a trine to your Sun this year, and exciting (not jarring) changes and new interests characterize this period. It’s easier than usual to express your unique individuality, and if this involves changing careers or jobs, a new love affair, or an entirely new hobby, it’s something that takes you forward into unexplored territory. You are more willing to adapt to new circumstances, ideas, and unfamiliar situations. It’s a good time to join organizations and groups and to attend meetings or social events. You are quick to find creative solutions to problems now. Flexibility is the key to success under this influence.

Relationships may be stabilized and steady this year, or there can be a new sense of realism in existing partnerships. A sense of duty may lead you to sacrifice a personal pleasure for a cause or for a loved one; thus there could be times when you have to abstain from personal gratification for the time being. Financial discipline, realism, and maturity are possible during this period of your life. You are more conservative when it comes to spending, whether this is because circumstances are such that you need to penny pinch, or you are simply more realistic about your finances.

However, you’re also in a great position to creatively combine traditional and progressive approaches to relationships this year. For example, relationships that are on-off may stabilize or alternative setups can thrive.

Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or you could enjoy a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships.

Err on the side of caution if offers arrive that seem too good to be true. Some confusion or possibly deception could arise in communications this year, and you may be skipping important details without even realizing it.

You are imaginative, creative, and communicate warmly and considerately. This is a good time for both teaching and learning, and for expressing feelings. Researching cooking, health, and nutrition can be fruitful now. It’s also a strong time for marketing.

This is a strong year for spirituality and commitment to spiritual or metaphysical goals. Higher learning, mind expansion, or travel can also be in focus and very rewarding.

In your relationships, you may be feeling pleasantly attached, finding it natural and easy to nurture and support people in your life. However, you’re also quite willing to try new ways of relating and you’re more inclined to venture out socially or try new things. You’re in a good position for social meetings and events. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and this energy can bring sudden or unexpected romance into your life. This may be more of a year of experimenting than committing.

Making connections with others from a different background is likely to figure in the year ahead, or widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. Generosity and compassion increases and your faith is boosted. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the better good.

Your personality is sparkling this year, which is sure to attract new circumstances and people into your life. This is an excellent year for new ideas and projects. You’re in good shape for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities, but also for tuning into new and progressive ideas. This is also a great period for a more mature approach to finances or relationships.

2017 is a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.

2018 will be a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, December 23, 2017

Claire Petulengro

The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

You enter this Christmas week on a high, as you discover how much a certain sign really thinks of you. You’ll have no reason not to enjoy this festive month better than ever before. Buy an extra gift. You’re going to need it when you see who’s turning up. Talks you have socially about your career show you a new opening you had not previously noticed.

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Confrontations you have been dreading can and will actually turn out to be a good thing. You realise that you were in control all along, even though you thought you weren’t. Those involved were just waiting for the chance to show you this fact. Christmas Eve promises to put you in the path of someone you’ve really missed.

 

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

If close ones are asking you for promises and commitments you don’t really want, then talk to them Gemini. You have spent far too long in recent weeks and months worrying about things, but not actually doing anything about them. Freedom is yours if you ask for it. You’ve just forgotten how to take control.,

 

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

Stop worrying about what has happened in the past and instead take control over what is going on in the here and now. Try to sit down and do your sums before Christmas day, as offers will be coming your way you’re going to want to take, but you are going to need to know your financial status to accept them.

 

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

You are so much stronger than you think Leo. This festive week will prove this fact as you begin to take the lead in areas of your life you usually give others control in. Your ruling planet the Sun, helps you to get back on track over Christmas with those you have grown distant from. Phone calls bring you an apology boxing day.

 

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

You don’t mean to offend those you love, but if someone buys you a gift you don’t really want, then your disapproval is likely to be written all over your face. Try to deal with what is really on your mind before Monday, so you can make this Christmas one worth really celebrating.

 

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

There is a really naughty feel to your chart, which could see you doing the opposite of what people ask just to make a statement. Know how far is too far to go my friend, or you will only end up undoing all of the repair work you did in November. I know you miss someone who is not around and this seems to be the source of your behaviour.

 

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

Problems which you think have got the better of you this Christmas are actually nothing more than a storm in a teacup. You finally start to focus on having fun from Sunday. You realise that others can’t control your decisions and actions this week, but you can and you will. Last minute changes to Christmas day bring relief and pleasure.

 

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

The hard times you went through in recent months have only served to make you stronger Sagittarius. You use this Christmas to show thanks and to feel grateful for all that is now going right with your life. Don’t be afraid to say no to those who invite you out if you don’t want to spend time with them. This is your week to relax and not just for others to enjoy.

 

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

You gave so much loyalty to those who gave you nothing but disrespect in return. It has taken you a long time to make sense of what happened over the last three months, but I know and you will soon, that you have come out of everything a better person. You’re emotionally richer and decisions you make Christmas and Boxing Day prove this.

 

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

You want to back out of something you committed to, but you are not quite sure how to do so, are you Aquarius. Luckily for you, those involved have already picked up on your feelings and will be making such decisions easy for you. The need to tell others’ secrets on Boxing day must be resisted.

 

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

Advice you both give and take in the week ahead can help you to shape your life so it is more suited to your needs. It may be Christmas week, but you still seem to have your professional head on and you will be taking steps to shape your career ideas ready for the New Year. A delay on a legal dealing is actually a blessing. Ring now for more on this very memorable time.

Embrace the Winter Solstice

The darkest day makes way for the return of light


December 21, 2017 marks the Winter Solstice, which is the official beginning of winter, and the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. But there’s a light at the end of this tunnel — literally! As the temperatures fall throughout the winter, the light grows, representing new hope during a time of darkness.

Ancient solstice festivals were the last big feasts before food became scarce during the harsh winter months. This magical day was celebrated from ancient Rome to China, and by the builders of Stonehenge to the Mayans. In fact, we all remember the Winter Solstice on December 21, 2012, which was the apparent end of the Mayan calendar, causing many to believe the end of the world is coming. Obviously, we’re still here!

Many modern holiday traditions, such as Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and New Year’s, have their roots in the Winter Solstice celebrations of yesterday. Winter festivals continue today, complete with lights, feasts, dancing and singing, and spending quality time with those we love.

Astrologically, the Winter Solstice marks the moment the Sun — the ruler of the zodiac — moves from adventurous Fire sign Sagittarius to the steady Earth sign of Capricorn. This is the dark night of the year, a day when the Sun appears to stand still. It’s a time for light and laughter, but also deep reflection.

The Sun’s move into steady Capricorn urges us to take some time to look back on 2017 before we make those New Year’s resolutions. What did we do right? What do we wish we’d done differently? Don’t fight the seriousness it brings to the festive holiday season — use it to start 2018 on the right foot! Just make sure to keep some of the Goat’s ambitious energy alive when the Sun makes its next move.

By Maria DeSimone

From Tarot.com

General

General Horoscope

The Sun’s shift into conservative Capricorn at 11:27 am EST marks the Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. Our energy turns inward to contemplate the magic that occurs in the dark. Subsequently, the Sun hooks up with karmic Saturn, reminding us of our priorities, while a jolly Sun-Jupiter alignment tempts us to run off and play. Ultimately, the truth reigns supreme while the Moon is visiting rational Aquarius.

Aries

Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

Taking your place in the outer world seems like the natural thing to do now. You command with an air of authority and you expect others to follow your lead while the Sun is illuminating your 10th House of Public Life. You have no option today but to choose responsibility over independence. Fortunately, you fully appreciate your role in the larger changes and are temporarily willing to set aside your personal battle to play a part in a larger one. Bob Dylan wrote, “A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.”

Taurus

Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

Your goals are simple and straightforward. You want to step so far out of your regular routine today that everything appears sparkling new and different. But your current restlessness doesn’t alter your basic need for consistency, even if you’re being pulled in opposite directions. Ultimately, the Sun’s month-long trek through your 9th House of Journeys highlights the trajectories that take you far from your current circumstances. Tim Fargo wrote, “Until you cross the bridge of your insecurities, you can’t begin to explore your possibilities.”

Gemini

Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

Your margin of error is quite narrow now, requiring you to make certain that your behavior is right on point. Performance pressure is an excellent motivator, giving you just enough push to prevent you from being lazy. The methodical Sun-Saturn conjunction falls in your 8th House of Transformation, stabilizing your emotions while you experience a complete metamorphosis. Don’t fear failure when change looks so good on you.

Cancer

Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

You might believe that your positive outlook can turn a stressful day into one filled with fun and games. However, the Sun’s current visit to your 7th House of Relationships shines the spotlight on people who make demands of your time. Unfortunately, altering your attitude will not necessarily change the dynamics of the present situation. Trusting your intuition today could lead you down the scenic route when it’s much wiser to take the shortest one. Honesty saves time.

Leo

Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

There is no escaping the road of hard work that stretches into the future if you want to reach your current goals. Your biggest struggle now may stem from your resistance to pay attention to all the details. You wish you could continue to spontaneously react to each situation as it arises, since your energy shines brightest when you are simply acting in the moment. However, the scope of your current job might be overwhelming if you only look at the big picture. Focus on the most important task first.

Virgo

Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

Expressing yourself creatively allows you to tap into your artistic potential. You can be incredibly productive these days if you take time to map out your plans. Working from a blueprint makes more sense than winging it when managing all the complicated variables at play. Creating your playbook while the energy unfolds is less than ideal now. As President Thomas Jefferson noted, “I am a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.”

Libra

Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

Stepping back from activities in the outer world gives you time to formulate a new strategy when dealing with the inconsistent behavior of others. It’s as if overcompensating in one area of your life where you can exercise control will fix the lingering problems somewhere else where your jurisdiction is limited. If it feels like there is too much at stake now, retreat from the center of the storm while you decide what to do next. Declaring a personal timeout offers you the objective distance you need to clear your head.

Scorpio

Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

You are caught in an odd predicament today. You are standing at an intersection on the Highway of Life, yet your map doesn’t indicate where each road leads. Unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to make an informed decision without all the facts at your disposal. You don’t like the idea of standing around and waiting for help to arrive before you commit to one path or another. Thankfully, your sense of immediacy is based on your own fears now rather than actual cues from your environment. Not all those who wander are lost.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

You have many tricks up your sleeve that enable you to sidestep your responsibilities whenever you get the urge to play. However, it’s a whole new story today when an industrious Sun-Saturn conjunction settles into your 2nd House of Money. You understand the connection between self-esteem and abundance; it’s not enough to simply hustle harder to increase your income. You must also do the spiritual work that bolsters your confidence and strengthens your metaphysical foundation. Proceed slowly and build on what you already started, rather than beginning something new.

Capricorn

Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

Your dedication to a cause makes you a fierce force once you discover your mission. You feel highly energized now that the willful Sun joins authoritative Saturn in your ambitious sign. People may be overwhelmed with your unrelenting drive to reach your goal, but you won’t back down today. Although establishing yourself as the leader of the pack makes you feel like a winner, it turns everyone else into losers. Your lesson now is the realization that you succeed or fail as a group, not as an individual. Michael Jordan said, “Talent wins games, but teamwork wins championships.”

Aquarius

Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

Although you may be pleased with your recent progress, there’s still a long way to go. You wish you were more excited about your future, but there is too much happening today to dream about tomorrow. There are major decisions looming on the horizon while the Sun travels through your 12th House of Destiny. Rather than attempting to make mid-course corrections on your current trajectory, focus your efforts on lightening your load by eliminating unnecessary emotional baggage. The less encumbered you are now, the easier the choices will be to make.

Pisces

Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

Your interactions with friends and associates may not go as planned today, since you are unwilling to play frivolous games when you have more important matters to manage. You’re particularly serious now because you intuitively know your current actions could make or break your plans. Demonstrating your effectiveness and efficiency on the job is a major contributor to your success. Nevertheless, your support network is an important piece of your overall business strategy and should not be ignored. Listening to their opinions is an act of appreciation

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, December 21

Claire Petulengro

From the Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
You don’t get harmony when everybody sings the same note do you Aries. Try to focus on finishing what you have started. This is the best way for you to have a clear mind so you can have the best Christmas possible.
TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Try not to play games in love, or you are going to get your fingers burnt. It would be far better for you to speak from the heart and say what you mean. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by what is on offer if you do.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
The stars put you back in control of life and love. You no longer feel pressured, but liberated. You are ready, willing and able to take control of your life and all that is going on in it.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
The chance to meet up with someone you have not seen in an age proves too good to resist. The only setback is it may involve you having to tell a white lie to those you were supposed to meet.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
You have learnt a lot of lessons in the last few weeks, that much is clear. What you have not learnt, is that you are and continue to be a priority. Time spent with extended family answers many questions.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
If you’re willing to work hard and even put in a few hours for free, then you are going to win the long term support and admiration of those with the power. An ex is on your mind for all the wrong reasons.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
Others will be trying to talk you into doing what they want to do. Stand your ground. You and I know you have spent far too long trying to please everyone else when you should be putting your personal life to the fore.

 

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Resist the temptation to stand up for those who are in situations where you don’t yet know the whole story. There may be grey areas you will need to confirm before you can put your reputation on the line.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
The need to gossip is strong in your chart. Try to recognise how far is too far to go, or you will be angry with yourself this time tomorrow. You’re getting ready for a big confrontation. Good things happen with honest words.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Very little is needed to make your life a happy place to be and to make this Christmas a good one. Today you recognise what your goals need to be and put steps into place to mend one of the most important relationships in your life.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
Family prove irritating, but it would be worth your while trying to slow your pace and  think about how you can simplify the arrangements with your Christmas. Less is more after the very colourful month you’ve had so far.

 

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
The way you feel about certain people is changing. You no longer want to be the one who follows the crowd, you want to live the life you were meant to, that of a leader.

 

 

If You Were Born Today, December 21

 

You are exceptionally magnetic, possess a flair for the dramatic, and generally like being at the center of attention. Your charisma is unmistakable, and is one of the ingredients in your recipe for success; the other main ingredients are your determination and talent. You are particularly suited to an acting or teaching position–one that plays up your wonderful ability to inspire others. You remember every little detail about people, and this is very charming! You are a success-oriented person who others often consider to be quite fortunate. Famous people born today: Ray Romano, Jane Fonda, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Evert, Kiefer Sutherland, Phil Donahue, Frank Zappa.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

Your birthday this year occurs shortly after a New Moon, suggesting a time of new beginnings and fresh energy. You are instinctively starting a new phase in your life. It’s time to give your life a makeover and to branch out into the untried.

This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.

Transiting Uranus forms a trine to your Sun this year, and exciting (not jarring) changes and new interests characterize this period. It’s easier than usual to express your unique individuality, and if this involves changing careers or jobs, a new love affair, or an entirely new hobby, it’s something that takes you forward into unexplored territory. You are more willing to adapt to new circumstances, ideas, and unfamiliar situations. It’s a good time to join organizations and groups and to attend meetings or social events. You are quick to find creative solutions to problems now. Flexibility is the key to success under this influence.

This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.

However, because Mercury forms a tense aspect with Neptune as well, err on the side of caution if offers arrive that seem too good to be true. Some confusion or possibly deception could arise in communications this year, and you may be skipping important details without even realizing it.

You are imaginative, creative, and communicate warmly and considerately. This is a good time for both teaching and learning, and for expressing feelings. Researching cooking, health, and nutrition can be fruitful now. It’s also a strong time for marketing.

This is a strong year for spirituality and commitment to spiritual or metaphysical goals. Higher learning, mind expansion, or travel can also be in focus and very rewarding.

In your relationships, you may be feeling pleasantly attached, finding it natural and easy to nurture and support people in your life. However, you’re also quite willing to try new ways of relating and you’re more inclined to venture out socially or try new things. You’re in a good position for social meetings and events. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and this energy can bring sudden or unexpected romance into your life. This may be more of a year of experimenting than committing.

Making connections with others from a different background is likely to figure in the year ahead, or widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. Generosity and compassion increases and your faith is boosted. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the better good.

Your personality is sparkling this year, which is sure to attract new circumstances and people into your life. This is an excellent year for new ideas and projects. You’re in good shape for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities, but also for tuning into new and progressive ideas. This is also a great period for connecting with people and projects who/that inspire you.

 

2017 is a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.

2018 will be a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.

The Astrology Room

 

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Are you excited about Christmas Aries? You should be. What you didn’t know last year but do now, is that life is for living and that no one can stop an Aries from doing what they want to do.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Don’t let them tame you Taurus, but work on being the best version of you there can be this Christmas month. Time spent telling tales on others is wasted. Try to work on bringing who you love together for next week.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun, but that doesn’t mean that you have to do what you don’t want to. Relationships come under the spotlight and you find it possible to make peace with someone from your past.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
Unexpected gifts or acts of kindness come your way and you begin to see who is on your side and who has been working against you. Make time for an older face you have been ignoring. They have news you’ll want to hear!

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Slow down in relationships my friend, or you are going to end up missing all the fun. If you can pay more attention to the simple things in life, then you will be in with a chance of finding what happiness means.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
Try not to hesitate when you are asked questions this week, instead try to speak from the heart. It’s how you will find out who you really are and what you really want.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
The stars bring out a more psychic side to your nature and you find it possible to make amends in situations which you were just about ready to give up on. Time spent on facts and figures can save you money and reputation..

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Of course it hurts if you lay your heart on the line and it gets stamped on. What you have to realise from here on in though, is that if you place your emotions before those who are not worthy, of course they’ll take advantage.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Travel is well starred and any trips you make to see those you love between now and the New Year will be greatly appreciated and enjoyed. Being on time tonight can make all the difference to a yes or no answer.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Go slow with new relationships in your life which are taking shape. It would be in your interests to let others speak while you listen. It can show you a way of living which may be a better path for you.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
There is a naughty feel to your chart which could well see you saying and doing things that could upset the coming Christmas week. Know how far is too far to go. You’ve worked too hard to fall back now.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
There is an immature feel to your chart which could see you saying and doing things just to get a reaction from those who have upset you. Be stronger than that and remember you’re a Pisces. Talking about what you really want today moves mountains.

 

Winter Love Horoscopes 2017-2018

Reveal how your heart will stay warm this winter season…


This winter invites us to get cozy, cuddle up, and reconnect. Two short days before Winter Solstice on December 21, serious Saturn enters structured Capricorn. Even the most independent among us may feel a strong desire to form lasting romantic bonds this season.

For single people, finding a soul mate could become more important than playing the field. Attached couples may grow closer, feeling a renewed determination to build a happy, healthy life together.

Two eclipses will inject magic into this winter season. The first occurs on January 31, when a Lunar Eclipse in Leo invites us to either make up or break up. Many couples will decide to take casual relationships to the next level. Unhappy alliances will go by the wayside, making room for the passion and excitement of true love. On February 15, the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius helps us to radiate love outward to the entire world. Treating strangers with the same kind of care and consideration as our loved ones may be the greatest gift this winter brings.

The stars are poised to bring love, romance, and affection to everyone this season. Our only job is to receive these blessings with joy and gratitude. To discover how your sign will be specifically blessed, read on…

Aries Horoscope (March 21 – April 19)

Ambitious Saturn moves into your career sector on December 19, shortly before the Winter Solstice. While achieving new professional heights will become increasingly important, you shouldn’t neglect your personal life during your climb to the top.

Ten of Wands


This suit, most often called “Wands” and sometimes called “Rods” or “Staves,” represents initiative, ambition, drive and desire. This is the suit of enterprise and risk-taking.

The Ten of this suit represents an all-out effort, an obsessive commitment to a task which demands everything you’ve got. The person shown in decks with pictures is in no position to rest until he makes it inside the stout walls of the well-defended castle in the distance. If he fails, he will become prey for the highway robbers after dark.

Let the anticipation build until you can’t take it anymore!

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today

The Magus



The Magus is the physical embodiment of decisive action based upon knowledge and aimed squarely at specific goals. Thoroughly Yang by nature and firmly set in the material world, he none-the-less has a powerful spiritual connection as well. His knowledge, wisdom and skill are all encompassing. He is complete. His power as a creator is unmatched on our earthly plane. He is self-aware and unafraid to act. His enormous strength gives him the freedom to act as he chooses. However, responsibility comes with that freedom. Because he is not bound to the restraints of others he must choose how to act. The question that always lies before him is should he act morally, or forsake ethics for personal gain.

As a daily card, The Magus suggest you currently possess a tremendous power and freedom to move your life in any direction you choose. In short, you can make things happen. Your true challenge at the moment is to move forward without trampling the dreams of others. Fortunately your moral fiber is strong as well, and will guide you down the right path.

 

 

Your Animal Spirit for Today

Wolf

Wolf can survive either as a loner or as part of a pack, and he howls to remind you that you have to balance the needs of others with the needs of the self. If you’re giving yourself away to your own detriment, you are living in opposition to Wolf medicine. Return to balance—and begin feeding your emotions, your mind, and your body.

 

 

Your Karmic Number for

You are a natural leader today. People will look to you to clear a path for them to follow. You may be asked to take the reins of a project or situation because of your ability to listen and provide clear communication. Don’t be shy or doubt your abilities – you have unique talent that only your own self-doubt can hide. Abundance flows to you when you step into the role of leading others. If you aren’t offered an opportunity, look for one as a volunteer or even start writing a blog.

December 2017 Energy Report

It’s the final month of 2017 and if we look back on the past 11 months we have a lot to celebrate, it has been quite a wild ride with lots of progress. When I hear thousands of people say ‘mass awakening’ to describe what they see happening in the world, I know we have succeeded greatly. Now we can use the energy of December to prepare for 2018, representing another level of master as it’s an 11 year. So it’s not surprising that the energy themes for December is grounding, which is transcension, alignment, and integration, and serenity, which is clarity and the state of being ‘composed’.

Let’s look at how December begins – with a Mercury retrograde and a full moon supermoon. Full moons bring up a lot of emotional energy and they also light up the heavens and the earth. With a full moon the Sun shines on the Moon, they reflect each other. And this one is even more special as we look at the connection between the full moon, Mercury retro and Neptune. The full moon sets off Neptune (a square aspect) between the signs Gemini and Sagittarius. The short version of this longer astro story is, Gemini is the mind, Sag is higher thought and both are set off by Neptune, planet of illusion, spirituality, and the spiritual world. Think of it as the difference between low thinking and high thinking, knowing and wisdom, the chaotic, chattering mind and the serene, aware mind.

This full moon on December 3rd is a movement from denial (which is both the inability and the unwillingness to see other potentials) to awareness, a state of expanded knowing, to release the limitations of fear, doubt, and confusion to expand into acceptance, self-awareness, wisdom, and divinity. This is the point of intersection between human and spirit. This has been our soul mission for eons, integrating our divinity in our humanity for the achievement of congruent wholeness, not holiness as the church would have you believe.

And if that isn’t enough we have more action this month (December is a huge turning point to prepare for 2018). Venus, representing value, worthiness, love and self-love, and balance, hits 3 signs this month, Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn. These are not Venus’ best signs to be in so they challenge her ability to maintain her self-worth and serenity (another December energy theme) in tough situations. They are also the signs that deal with being in the world, especially  Capricorn.

How safe do you feel in the world? Have you been hibernating, afraid to shine your light? Does the world feel cold, ruthless, and dangerous to you? This starts to shift in December, opening to a much larger shift in 2018. We cannot open our hearts until we feel that our spiritual essence is safe and free from attack. One way to protect ourselves is to hibernate, another is to be serene and confident.

I think this is a reflection of what we are seeing in the world, the battle between the people and the ‘deep state’, overthrowing the self-serving politics of governments and agencies for the benefit of humanity. If you don’t already know it, we are involved in this battle right now and while we’re making headway, the battle is not yet won but the light is being spread by many more people now, so the light work that was once the exclusive mission of the light ‘workers’ is now being shared by a greater collective. That’s a relief.

Mars goes into  Scorpio on the 10th and that’s a challenging placement because the planet of war can become a little too brashly confident in the sign of transformation. But it will be balanced out by Jupiter, also in Scorpio. Saturn makes its long-awaited move into Capricorn on the 23rd where it will meet up with Pluto in early 2020.

Saturn/Pluto conjunctions are rare and this one arrives at a pivotal time in our collective evolution and ascension. What happens when the planetary taskmaster meets up with the planet of deep transformation? We don’t have to wait for 2020 as it is beginning right now. Keep those lights shining, they are very necessary to maintain our ascension and 5D integration for the next few years.

The most important energy activity this month is the Pluto/North Node aspect, at 150 degrees it is a very uncomfortable angle which is exact from November 25 to December 5. Take a look at what is happening in the political arena, the ‘mass awakening’ we are seeing in the world, the sexual harassment scandals, the government scandals, this is the result of this aspect. It’s also going to set the stage for what unravels in December, so watch for more reports of dirty deeds to hit the public awareness.

The December 18 new moon lights up Saturn on its last day in Sagittarius as it prepares to move into Capricorn. This is a last hurrah before we get down to work. This fiery new moon also involves Venus, Eris, and Uranus, another reminder that the power of transformation is chugging along. December brings the promise of transformation but we have to hitch our own wagons to that star and keep the energy moving in the direction we want it to go.

December’s first theme is grounding but this is less about maintaining the current stability of your own energy than it is to learn how to maintain that stability as you expand, integrate, align with, and anchor the energy you want to see in your life. If you want peace, love, joy, and prosperity, you have to create those energetic frequencies. They are not a random gift that magically appears in your life. They are a potential and potential without intention is vaporware. Potential needs to be grounded in our reality through intention and the world will be changed through our collective intention to create the world we want to live in.

December’s second theme is serenity which means more than peace, calm, and quiet. It means having clarity and being ‘unclouded’. If we want serenity we have to remove those things that cloud our energy, which is our own fear, self-doubt, and self-judgment. As energetically sovereign beings we are in control of our individual and collective realities. We do get to call the shots, so to speak, but not when we are distracted and disloyal to our own power. No one takes our power from us, we give it away without realizing that in doing so we are robbing ourselves of the joy, love, peace, and prosperity that we wish we had.

Being serene also means releasing your soul trauma, the painful energetic memory of lifetimes of trauma that serves the purpose of creating soul wounds to remind us of the karmic healing that is our life purpose but at some point, it just drags us down energetically. And in order to move farther along the 5D integration and ascension path, we must make a conscious and deliberate choice to release ourselves and everyone involved in this karma. That time has come. Set yourself free by envisioning the energetic outcomes you want in your life and let them become real-ized in your reality.

December has many opportunities for karmic release and forward movement. This does come with some challenges as releasing our karmic ties also shifts all of our relationships. In some cases we move to new levels together; in other cases, we move apart. Don’t fear the outcome, let the energy flow where it needs to for the fulfillment of your joy. Whatever leaves your life gets replaced by something else. Use the energetic potential of December to clear out the dark corners and scary spaces to prepare for a masterful time in 2018 and a new level of 5D integration and ascension for everyone.

3rd – 23rd December 2017 UT: Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius

Look Before You Leap!

Mercury stations retrograde in the final degree of Sagittarius, reminding us that sometimes it really is worth looking back before you leap. The importance of caution is further stressed by a conjunction to Saturn, as is the role of unbridled commitment to wisdom reflected in Black Moon Lilith’s presence alongside. All in all, this retrograde passage of Mercury augurs a time for reflection on what inspires us to action, what gives our life meaning and how we can go about expressing those values in our every day. Life is for

Often it’s simply easier to do what we want and justify it later if necessary. Sometimes that’s fine and life moves on. Other times less so. In the coming weeks it would be wise to stop and think before we explain away our actions with hindsight rather than setting priorities in advance based on an honest appraisal of the right thing to do. We may well burn with the desire to pursue a certain path. But in the heat of that desire we may disregard the impact of our decision on others or our future selves.Which isn’t to say that if we want it it’s wrong. Not at all! But we would benefit, now, from getting clear about what we want, why and the implications of getting it, bearing in mind that the grass often looks less green once we’ve jumped the fence….

Don’t burn bridges as the year comes to a close. Instead give yourself and others space to be the flawed and imperfect beings that we all are. The desire for freedom may be strong right now, especially freedom from the shackles of relationships that constrain and circumstances that bind. If desires remain as strong once the new year gets under way then action may be called for, but action undertaken following a period of reflection will be far more effective than decisions made in the blink of an eye and the heat of a fight. Whilst new beginnings often feel most potent at the time of the new year, bear in mind that a new start simply for the sake of it may plant seeds of confusion and entropy which take root further down the line.

On 21st December 2017 (UT) Saturn leaves Sagittarius (not to return for another 27 years) entering its own sign of Capricorn. It does so without fuss or hesitation, bidding an unequivocal farewell to the fiery inspiration of the archer whilst embracing the dogged persistence and pragmatism of the goat. Mercury’s retrograde passage right before this event comes as a blessing even though it may feel like a curse. It applies the brakes for a few weeks, allowing the future consequences of our burning desire to become apparent now, prompting better decisions and wiser action in due course. Once Saturn is in Capricorn action comes with great power and the impact of our every decision will be multiplied, for in its own sign Saturn holds us to account like nowhere else and we become subject to the most potent forces of karmic change.

Once this retrograde passage is over things will gather a pace once more as the new year gets under way. We may have itchy feet right now and want them to hurry up, but all things have their own time and it’s not for us to dictate their blossoming. We may sense Mercury holding us back in the coming weeks but it’s not for no reason. It is, instead, a precious warning that we may diminish the gravity of our decisions in the face of an unassailable lust for freedom. Liberation may well be near and we can smell it on the air like jasmine, but its arrival may take longer than we hope and challenge us to greater patience than we think we have to spare. Rest assured this is but a brief pause in the midst of a lengthy process of recalibration and change. So take heart, don’t give up and stay focused on what matters. Remember the most enduring blessings of this life can easily be lost in the fog of desire for something which ultimately fails to prove its worth.

Your Weekly Karmic Forecast for December 3 – 9, 2017

The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.

*NOTE There are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.  

Weekly Forecast:  December 3 – 9, 2017

12/3 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~square~ Neptune (illusions & delusions):

This activation can cause self-doubt, self-delusion and an overall confusion that seems to be sourced within or self-directed. It’s only temporary, this is just the Universe’s way of slowing you down so you can see where your goals may have been unrealistic or based on flights of fancy. If your energy is low and you’re feeling challenged to see the bright side of things, it is better to just time-out, rest & replenish (if possible) and most of all, do not initiate any grand plans as you are not really seeing things as they truly are at this time. Luckily, this is a pretty short-lived activation.

12/6 ~ Mercury (thought process) ~conjunct~ Saturn (definition of reality): 

(2 of 2 in Sag:  11/28 & 12/6)

This energy is excellent for any important project that requires your undivided attention. If you’ve got a vision and have already outlined how to manifest it, now is the time to really fill in the blanks – flesh it out – bring it to life! Do the work! If you do not channel this energy toward patiently and methodically taking the steps (in order) to get to the next level, then it can manifest in frustration that you are not doing what you know in your heart you’re supposed to be doing at this time. It leads to negative thinking and self-sabotage. A better expression would be to not think of the things that can go wrong, but entertain the possibility that every door opens and all paths lead to your goal, no matter how they appear at the moment.

12/6 ~ Mercury (expression) ~sextile~ Mars (passion): 

This is a healthy selfish energy (aka self-preservation). Do not hold back this week. If you have a big dream or serious goal you have been working toward, then this is the time that may attract the assistance you need from the Universe. This is definitely a “work” energy, however, it brings with it the caveat that it is best if you work alone on something important to you. No one else is (or ever will be) as dedicated to your goal as YOU will be, nor should you expect them to be. You are now connected to the extra energy it takes to push your goals to the next level, bringing you a sense of accomplishment while outlining the next tasks to be done. Opportunities present themselves all the time, all you have to do is be ready!! If you are given the opportunity to make a presentation, go for it! Your clarity, energy & enthusiasm will be unmatched and that’s what people respond to. Don’t choose this time to be “shy” or doubt that you’re ready – you are definitely ready … otherwise, you wouldn’t be here!! One of my favorite sayings is: “At the moment of commitment, the Universe conspires to assist you!” It’s time to decide if you are committed and how truly committed you are, to your own success.

12/6 ~ Mars (action) ~sextile~ Saturn (endurance):

This energy gives you a tremendous power booster to your drive to create stability, as you define it. You will be more willing to do the work, starting with a plan that is carefully thought out and then methodically carried out. Plan and Do! Not just one or the other, but both, which can eventually produce solid results. The rewards for your hard work or the return on your investment will reflect what energy you have put in to stabilizing your life. This energy should not be restrained but consciously directed. Excessive restriction (Saturn) may cause an explosion (Mars) down the line, whereas a solid base (Saturn) contains the fire (Mars) so it becomes useful, productive, and often, beautiful as well.

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of December 5th

by Sarah Bartlett

From the Astrology Room

With a delightful full moon in light-hearted Gemini this week, and Venus firing on all cylinders through Sagittarius, we can all expect love to be a little more exciting than usual.

In fact, if romance is on your mind you’re about to discover the joys of someone new, or simply a new way of merging with the one you love.

 

ARIES

Whether you’re in a long-term relationship or in the middle of a series of dates, make your needs clear to your partner or admirer. This is one of those weeks when turning points and sign-posts beckon. And love, elusive and unpredictable as it is, begins to make itself heard loud and clear down the road ahead of you.

 

TAURUS

As you well know, divine romance and perfect people are only found in fiction. And right now, it just feels as if the dance towards that fairy-tale ‘happy ever after’ is littered with obstacles. But this week, the fog clears and you begin to accept that relating is a never-ending tango of good times and better ones to come.

 

GEMINI

With the full moon in your own sign, you’re at last being honest with yourself. The sexual sparks begin to fly in the right direction and your partner or new admirer also begins to realise that you’re not just a laugh a minute, but also someone who needs warmth and true respect for your extraordinary talents. You can make love work for you, but only if you work at it too.

CANCER

It seems right now, that if someone wants black, you want white, and if you both want it all your own way there’s little chance of ever coming to a satisfactory deal. But if the problem area is simply a pale shade of grey in need of clarification, with a little honesty you will soon see rewards beyond your wildest imagination.

 

LEO

Personally, you know you’ve got to do something to make a relationship move forward. But what? It’s time to live out the most expressive and romantic part of yourself. This is a fantastic week to define your goals, check out your true values and start living by your own rules. For what are they, if not a very unique expression of who you are?

 

VIRGO

Time to celebrate the new, sizzling, self-motivated you. But by the end of the week, you know that it’s also time to change your love life for the better. The communication channels open again, and you can now ask the very questions you’ve been avoiding. Make sure you also ask to be loved the way you truly want to be.

 

LIBRA

Does your deeper need for personal space diminish togetherness? The price is high, but the full moon, gives you the chance to probe the depths of your true intentions and follow them through.  If single, you’ll either be the star of the show, or at least surrounded by the right kind of company. Make sure others get to know the real you.

 

SCORPIO

You may be a creature of habit, but you’re in the mood for some changes. If you’re willing to put up with someone else’s hardened attitudes, are you doing so out of fear of rejection or really through acceptance?  So look after your own self first and foremost by doing something different this week.

 

SAGITTARIUS

Time to take a long hard look at your life and love. However hard or painful the past has been, there’s something special and precious coming out of it. You’re loving yourself, a little bit more, every day.  With the planets lighting up your relationships, at last you feel less of the defensive and more of the self-contained.

 

CAPRICORN

It’s hard to accept that you need to take a risk here and there. Right now, you have the chance to learn direct assertiveness and accept that sometimes you make mistakes. This is a week when your confidence, vitality and awareness of love values are turned upside down, but with fabulous results for the future.

 

AQUARIUS

The planets are reminding you to question your motives for any love decisions this week.  Is your life fulfilling? Are your true desires being met? Do you make promises then renege on them because you’re so insecure in yourself? Be honest and be rewarded.

 

PISCES

It’s all so delicate – relationships, romance, wondering, waiting, isn’t it? Guessing how someone else feels too, maybe? Things can be fixed, but only if you communicate, take the odd risk in love, and throw a little bit of caution to the wind. This week the enchantment can at last begin.

For Those Who Might Be Single, Your Daring Dating Forecast for the Week of December 5th

David Wells, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

In his final week in your relationship sky, Mars takes his job very seriously. He creates a way to say hi to someone or maybe it’s goodbye to what started off promising, now not so much? Energy in, results out. Spend this week directing your love power.

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

With Venus out of your relationship sky take a breath, consider what you want from romance rather than feeling the pressure to just get out and go on that date will you? Slow down T, this is a week to re-think what’s next; unlike next week. That full on!

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

A full Moon in your sign could have you more emotional than ever as she brings on the need to let go, let go of what you feel you no longer need in your life. It’s not necessarily about love, but the Sun’s presence in your relationship sky directs your attention to a one-on-one that needs a review.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

What would you think if someone swooped in and asked them out, said hi and flirted a little? If you’re ok with that, move along; your question has been answered, you’re not that into them. If you’re not ok, make sure you’re the one asking for that date.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

You can’t be all things to all people, who’s even asking? What you can be, and you do this very well, is be yourself. Love isn’t about altering your behaviour to be what you think someone is looking for, dismiss that idea and anyone who courts such nonsense. Authenticity, brings new romance.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

Your ruler, Mercury, is in reverse and that can mean delays to travel and communication; no biggie. Unless you’re making your way to that first date and you know he or she isn’t what you’d call the patient type? Leave space for delays.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

As long as you’re prepared to let someone take the lead they will take the lead, sometimes it’s nice to know you need only show up. Sometimes. When does taking the lead turn into taking over? Usually about two years in and you’ve not noticed. Balance those decisions.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

What would you say if you could speak to your perfect partner? Would you ask him or her what their favourite colour was, maybe how they liked their roast potatoes? Quite the banal banter, perfect could be right in front of you seeking a deeper conversation. Give them it

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

With your relationship planet Mercury in reverse from Sunday it’s probably a good idea to pause, consider what you’re going to say before you say it. Given Uranus is in reverse too it may be wise to resist what you think are clever witticisms. Turns out they’re not.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

Shoulders can be broad or they can slope, you can accept the invitation to help or let it go. Someone asks, what do you do? It’s not based on whether or not you fancy them, surely? Not in the slightest, but helping could bring romance your way and all because you’re being your helpful self. Excellent.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

Social invitations begin to flow, your sequins are being dusted off and your hair is looking amazing; all set to go. But wait, your new love planet Mercury is in reverse, so too is your ruler Uranus so should you be wary? Only of the bus and train timetables.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

As the Moon goes full your new love ruler suggests you ask what you don’t want from a new romance, in progress or not. A sense of duty is a good thing, but not when it tips over into being Mother or Father to his or her neediness. Just saying.

Your Horoscopes for the Week of Monday, December 5th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

Financial affairs are strong in your chart. This week many of you rams will be making major decisions about your future and when and how much you are going to invest in it. Although family think they know what’s best for you, they don’t know the whole story, so be careful of taking advice which is not tailor made for you.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Although your stubborn nature can be an asset, it has recently been a setback for you. Try to make the effort to say sorry to those you may owe an apology to. It’s the only way you’re going to get back on track in time for Christmas, my friend. New ways to make your working week an easier place to be come via new faces midweek.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

You start to be more honest about who you want to spend your time with and who you want to see less of. This is unlikely to come as a surprise to you, for it’s been building up for some time. Mercury your ruling planet helps you to better understand why those you care for had to say no to your demands. Clarity is yours.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

You seem to be missing those who are no longer a part of your life. You realise you need to move on, but you need help finding the tools to do so. Luckily for you, Jupiter the planet of self expansion helps you to distinguish those who want to help, from those who want to hinder. New attractions come via travel.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

Do you mean what you say? Or are you just speaking for the sake of it out of frustration and angst Leo? Events over the coming days will make it clear to you what is really going on. Just remember to stick to promises you made in business. Your reputation and your finances will depend on it my friend.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

I can see from your stars that your time has not really been your own recently. What I also see though Virgo, is that you have allowed those who are weaker than you to walk all over you. Frustrations in finance don’t have to be that way. Push the boundaries and ask for the help you need, but start from the top and don’t accept loose promises.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

Your close ones have not been making it easy for you to tell them the truth lately. I can see the frustration in your chart, but I can also see that it’s time for you to step away and take a break. Arrange to see those you know help you relax so that you can look at your problems and worries from a fresh angle.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

Mercury pushes those around you to speak for the sake of it. Therefore, you would be wise to believe nothing of what you hear and only half of what you see. Mars brings out your demanding side, which could well see you asking for things you don’t really want or need. Take a step back and think about your long-term goals, rather than trying to push others boundaries.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

Love who you are Sagittarius. It’s the key to you ending this year on a high. Time spent on your own going over paperwork midweek can help you find a way out of a problem you were beginning to give up hope on. The return of someone you did not think you would see again for a long time (if at all) shakes up your world and emotions.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

Whatever you do and wherever you are, be there Capricorn. Travel is written in your stars and any plans you make over the coming days are sure to make you look forward to Christmas and the New Year. Try not to be talked into plans you don’t want in your personal life. Especially when you’ve only just got your freedom back.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

Something which was out of your influence is now in your control, but you seem to be the only one who has noticed this fact. Your element of air brings out your gossipy side and could even see you sharing secrets which will upset those you care about. The Moon brings out your emotive side on Sunday, when you feel the need to contact someone you’ve missed.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

The events in November have left you with quite a mess to clean up, haven’t they Pisces? Luckily for you the stars are on hand to help you do so with ease. All you have to do is be honest about what the problem was and where the source lies. Face this and you can proceed through this month constructively.

 

If You Were Born Today, December 5

 

You are a true visionary with the intelligence and creativity to back it up. You are truly ahead of your time. You are resourceful and very quick to take care of the things that need to be done. Freedom-loving always, you don’t appreciate being confined or stereotyped whatsoever. You are very sharp and witty, sometimes surprising others with your astute perceptions and quips. You value loyalty in others most. You can sometimes be a little hard on others, as you do expect honesty and integrity and become quite impatient with anything less. Famous people born today: Walt Disney, Little Richard, Jose Maria Carreras, Margaret Cho, Nick Stahl, Frankie Muniz.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

A Full Moon in your Solar Return chart marks this as a year of great personal significance, when major new beginnings, endings, and activities occur. This period is the culmination of a stage of personal growth and development. Events occurring this year may bring various developments in your emotional, psychological, or spiritual life over the past several years to a head. Relationships are especially important. There can be increased activity in your professional and public life, causing a conflict with your domestic and personal goals. There is little moderation in your life this year. Connections are made or ended, or your job focus may change as one focus fades to make way for a new direction. The year ahead is certain to be a very busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.

A transiting Neptune square to your Sun that began in April 2017 continues this year and brings out your idealistic side. Excessive idealism can cause a few problems if you’re not careful. Some confusion about where you are headed in life is quite likely at the beginning of this transit. You could be undergoing confusion about what you want from life and how to go about satisfying your ego. There can be a real “identity crisis” that ultimately leads to a reworking of your self-image and a greater understanding of your purpose. 

While you don’t always know where you’re headed in a larger sense, the year is good for motivation levels regarding work or projects and personal interests. There can be opportunities to pursue absorbing topics and projects of interest. More joy and meaning can be found in your work or obligations.

Your ability to concentrate and focus is enhanced this year. You may, in fact, have a lot of work to do in relative solitude or you might often retreat to study, work, or think. You might be required to travel for business purposes. Thinking in realistic and practical terms is your best bet, and the need for tangible results for your efforts is strong.

You may be actively involved in teamwork and collaboration with others this year. Passions are stirred and you’re in a good position for connecting with others to accomplish your goals. There can be the beginning of a significant new relationship or the intensification of an existing romance.

You express yourself more clearly and you can be excellent at guiding and instructing others. There is a pronounced ability to order your thoughts and ideas, come up with designs, and recognize patterns. You can especially enjoy making plans, lists, and connections this year.

However, this can be a year when bursts of restlessness, rebellion, and impatience figure prominently. You have a tendency to take risks and to act on sudden impulses without considering consequences. You assert your will and individuality powerfully, and you are ready to fight for freedom. There may be changes in work schedules, or life’s circumstances could challenge you in such a way that you need to change your goals or actions. This can also be a time when you tend to resist others and challenge them if they are trying to hold you back. Arguments and confrontations are likely. Technology may be a source of irritation, and electrical appliances may break down or not work up to par.

Energy fluctuates this year. Anger can erupt seemingly from nowhere and it gives you the chance to deal with it. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, this can be an excellent year in which to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.

Helping ground you is a Mars-Saturn sextile that gives you a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. Practice or refining a technique is favored this year. The approach that seems to work best with this aspect is a step-by-step one, with modest ambitions and the appreciation of slow but steady progress. This is particularly true of mental projects and special interests. You can be prolific when your heart is engaged in what you’re doing.

This can be a good time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease. Wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year.

Making connections with others from a different background is likely to figure in the year ahead, or widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. Generosity and compassion increases and your faith is boosted. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the better good.

Relationships are in strong focus now, and you can find yourself in higher demand than usual. The year ahead can involve some surprise directions and detours. You can find some areas of life quite confusing, in fact, as you seek out more fulfillment. Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely this year, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results. You’re in good shape for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities. However, watch for rash, impulsive decisions.

2017 is a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.

2018 will be a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.

Your Horoscopes for Wednesday, December 6th

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Don’t be used by those close to you. You’ve done nothing but try with certain close ones recently. I can see from your stars that all they have been doing is taking advantage of you. Make today the day you say ‘enough.’

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Energy and persistence conquer all things. If you can realise this and work harder towards your dreams, instead of being side tracked by bad influences, then you would move mountains.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
I know how hard it is when you feel that you have given your all to someone, but they now seem to have forgotten everything you ever did for them. Don’t beat yourself up about it Gemini. In time they will realise their error.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
Having faith in your close ones is what will get them that much closer to success. Money you put into the home may seem like throwing good money after bad, but can in fact give you the long term security you need.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
The Sun helps you to work out where you have been going wrong in your personal life. You are no longer afraid to admit what’s not working. Just remember to keep manners to the fore. It’s the key to you maintaining the upper hand.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
There is a tired feel to your chart, which may see you thinking about cancelling things you had lined up for the days ahead. Don’t! By continuing with plans, you’ll soon find your energy levels rising and your smile broadening.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
Your element of air could see you sharing others’ secrets. Careful Libra, you could end up losing an important friendship if you do. Time spent making the most of opportunities that are open in the workplace, can change everything for you.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
You couldn’t see what was happening around you because you were blinded by what others told you. From today, Saturn joins your fight for the truth. You finally get to see things as they really are.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
People you’ll be meeting over the course of the next few days help you to think outside the box and to consider how you can better spend your spare time. Your sign is that of a follower; don’t get led on

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
As Marilyn Monroe once said, ‘keep smiling because life is beautiful and there’s so much to smile about.’ This has been hard to believe lately, but you will see that its true by the newfound confidence you find in thoughts of your future.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
You think you can’t trust a close one, but you can’t afford not to if you are going to convince them that you are in it for the long haul Aquarius. Or perhaps you’re not? Answering this question honestly will tell you how you really feel.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
The more you do today, the more you will be able to do. You were held back by thoughts of the past, but I see that you have cut that cord and you are ready, willing and able to move on. Ring now to hear how casual flirtations have serious connotations.

A Look Ahead at Your Daring Dating Horoscopes for the Week of December 3rd

David Wells, Astrologer

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, December 2nd

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

The first of three Jupiter-Neptune trine aspects that extend until next August occurs today, dear Aries. This influence augurs exceptionally well for your intimate, inner, and emotional life this month and beyond. You’re entering a favorable period for intimacy and psychological growth. Imaginative activities or behind-the-scenes efforts can be rewarding, either spiritually or materially, and perhaps a bit of both. Generosity and compassion increase. The months ahead are excellent for your dreaming life, fantasy, belief systems, inner world, intimate relationships, and writing/sharing experiences. Also today, however, there can be some impatience and frustrations. Although your spirits are bound to be high today and tomorrow, there can be some nitpicky problems or complications to deal with that set you off course temporarily. Avoid making big changes now.ms to deal with.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

Jupiter and Neptune come together in a harmonious trine aspect today, dear Taurus. They will revisit this aspect in May and August 2018, but you’re receiving the first signs of this influence now. Its themes are subtle but inspiring. This is a period for learning a tremendous amount – the types of things you don’t learn in books or in school – through your experiences and interactions. It’s an excellent and extended opportunity period for forming or strengthening alliances and improving the spiritual or friendship element of a partnership. Friendships improve, as well. You’re likely to seek a kindred spirit now, and a connection can be a source of inspiration. Another side of this aspect involves the seeking and realization of a long-term dream or goal, which seems more likely now through the support or positivity of a friend/partner. Today and tomorrow, there is confusing, impatient, and frustrating energy, however, as various little things seem to go wrong. Nevertheless, your prevailing mood is accepting and confident, so you’re taking things in stride.

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

A Jupiter-Neptune aspect that is in effect until August next year first forms today, Gemini, and encourages a more spiritual or imaginative approach to your work, services, and health. Until August 2018, you’re in an excellent cycle for enjoying or finding work, showcasing your skills, and improving working relationships. There is powerfully creative, generous energy with you for matters related to your career and reputation. A vocation or life path/direction may seem to fall into place quite magically, especially if you relax on the need to strictly define your end goals and instead focus on doing your best in the present. Trust that by doing what you love, you’ll get where you need to go, however long it may take! This can be a good time for coming up with creative solutions to problems. Today and tomorrow also host some somewhat confusing, tense, and impatient energy, however, so do your best to avoid drawing final decisions and conclusions. The day is more about accepting and enjoying people than making big moves.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

A Jupiter-Neptune trine occurring today is a long-term aspect that will influence us until August 2018, dear Cancer, and is a potentially magical transit for romance, children, creativity, publishing, travel, and self-expression. This is a time for using your imagination to your benefit instead of allowing it to stand in the way of happiness and success. Matters of the heart can be inspiring. There can be beautiful connections made through travel or educational endeavors or shared adventures. This is a time for opening your mind or spirit to new experiences. Trips or learning experiences could be especially rewarding for you – they can provide a pleasant breather from pressures in your life. Your creative works may even inspire others and certainly serve to motivate you. Today and tomorrow, however, energies are confusing at best. Luckily, you are in a reasonable frame of mind, as disruptions are highly likely now.

Leo

Leo
Leo

Jupiter and Neptune form a harmonious aspect today, dear Leo, and this is the first of three such aspects spanning until August 2018. The theme of this longer-term influence is supportive, imaginative, and even a bit magical. It aids you in strengthening and making the most of the positive effects of Jupiter’s transit to your home and family sector. There may be increased resources available to you for improving your home life in the months ahead, or you can be thoroughly enjoying building a cozy home or relationship. For some of you, your financial dealings improve, possibly due to shared efforts or combined income. There can be more power and resources available to you to establish yourself through a home, property, or long-term business endeavor. You are in need of a spiritual or creative escape from time to time, and this influence nudges you to seek it out. Today and tomorrow, things may be moving slowly or with difficulty. Try not to get angry at yourself if you can’t seem to decide on a course of action as much can be accomplished in the mind and heart now.

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

Jupiter and Neptune come together in a fabulous trine aspect today, dear Virgo. This is the first of three such connections that span until August 2018, introducing a fun theme of intuitive relationships and pleasing communications or projects into your life over the course of the next eight months. During this period, you can be especially motivated to pursue your studies, personal interests, or connections with a partner. You’re in particularly good shape for sharing your ideas or working with someone to produce something special. Your speech or writing is more creative and inspired during this period. Transportation options make transit more enjoyable for some of you and might even open up partnering opportunities. A special relationship may develop that is highly communicative, or there is increased daily contact in an existing relationship. You express yourself imaginatively now. Today and tomorrow, however, there is picky energy that points to miscommunications and disruptions. Fortunately, you’re in a positive frame of mind. It’s best not to make hasty decisions or big changes now.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

A lovely trine aspect forms between Jupiter and Neptune today, dear Libra. This is the first of three such exact aspects spanning until August 2018, and augurs exceptionally well for you in the areas of work, finances, and health. Your self-image improves, and this has positive effects all around, as you take better care of yourself and pay more attention to the mind/spirit element of your life. This is a time not so much for perfecting your craft or talents, but for rounding them out and putting them to good use. The work you do now may feel more compatible with your overall philosophies or mission. Today’s energies are complicated, however. With Mercury about to turn retrograde especially, signals are difficult to read, and misunderstandings are likely. You have much that you’d like to accomplish now, but the day doesn’t seem to want you to push forward! Avoid making significant changes for the time being.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

Jupiter and Neptune connect in a harmonious aspect today, dear Scorpio, and this is the first of three such exact connections, the final of which will occur next August. Now and until August 2018, creative and romantic endeavors thrive. There is a magical quality to your charisma and appeal as well as your creative output. It can be a popular time for you as you stand out as unique and desirable. Expressing yourself creatively or romantically helps you understand and define yourself better — it’s a confidence-booster all around. Love, love affairs, and other social activities help to enhance a healthy self-image, and you draw in others magnetically. Today’s energies are complex. There can be some confusion that leads to impatience. Take note that Mercury stations retrograde tomorrow at the time of a Full Moon and a problematic Sun-Neptune aspect. As such, it’s better to watch for overspending, desires that come on suddenly, and snap decisions. While you may feel some pressure from others to make a choice, try not to succumb to it, as we’re not seeing things very clearly at the moment.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

Jupiter is transiting the sign just behind yours until next November, dear Sagittarius, making this is a relatively quiet but not necessarily passive time for you. Today, Jupiter forms a beautiful aspect with Neptune for the first of three times, extending until August 2018. During this period, you may find greater joy in being of service to others, and your perceptions heighten. You build your confidence in yourself as you help and support others. It can be a period for developing your psychic abilities and understanding your family connections more intuitively. This can also be a time for getting in touch with past conditioning that makes you what you are today. You may be able to gain property or support from family, or you could secure a loan or mortgage that helps you to improve your home life in the months ahead. Today’s energies are on the complicated side, particularly when it comes to relationships. Misunderstandings are possible, and with Mercury about to turn retrograde as well, it’s best to avoid significant changes or decisions. There can be some psychic phenomena experienced now, as your hunches tend to be well-developed, but you’re best off if you avoid succumbing to pressures to perform.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

Jupiter and Neptune connect in a supportive trine aspect today, dear Capricorn, and this is the first of three aspects spanning until August 2018. The themes this connection brings to your world are subtle but uplifting. Your social life and friends base might expand in the coming months, and you’re likely to see signs of this starting now and this month. Alternatively, you may be dreaming up exciting new paths for the future, and this keeps you feeling motivated and spirited. This is a powerful period for imaginative interactions and communications. Your ideas are inspired and inspiring. This aspect stimulates your idealistic nature, and you’re likely to yearn for a connection to more spiritual or creative pursuits. Today and tomorrow are complicated, however. Imagination is dominant now, and there can be confusion in your practical affairs. You may be better off reserving judgment and avoiding significant changes for now.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

Jupiter and Neptune form a supportive trine aspect today, dear Aquarius, and because these planets are relatively slow-moving, this aspect will stick around and influence you until August 2018. You’ll begin to see themes of this influence now. Business, financial, and reputation matters are likely to improve and develop in almost magical ways over the coming months. It’s also a time for carrying yourself with more self-respect and attracting positive attention. You may be joining with people who further your career or personal interests, and through their wisdom or faith in you, you are encouraged to reach your highest potential. Your ability to earn a living from what you love doing increases, you grow to love your work/responsibilities, or your work transforms in pleasant ways. Today, while there is good energy with you for accessing your imagination, you may not find it easy to apply it to your projects or work effectively just yet. In fact, it may seem to interfere with your practical affairs. Confusing energy continues tomorrow, making it better to avoid significant changes.

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

Jupiter and Neptune connect in an easy trine today, dear Pisces, and this harmonious influence is the first of three, spanning until August 2018. This can be a time for meeting a significant friend or a romantic interest through travel or other activity that involves breaking the routine. Communications thrive, and publishing can be successful. In the coming months, you may be going entirely new places with your mind or body! Teaching, guiding, and learning are prominent themes. It can be a time of tremendous personal appeal as well as life-changing, positive experiences that expand your mind. You are building your faith, not only in yourself but in life itself. Today and tomorrow, however, take things easy. Mercury is about to turn retrograde, and the Sun is moving into a challenging aspect with Neptune in your sign. There can be some pressure to perform or to get things done quickly, but your best bet now is to allow things to flow more naturally.

 

If You Were Born Today, December 2

 

You are spontaneous, fun, moody, and intriguing. Others are drawn to your adventurous spirit and sunny personality. Variety is what you crave, although without solid footing you don’t feel at all comfortable about seeking it. You can be highly creative, and it is especially important to channel your creativity, because, without focus, you can easily feel uncertain, lost, and confused. You are constantly working on your self-confidence in this lifetime, although others might not know this about you until they truly have been let into your heart. Famous people born today: Britney Spears, Nelly Furtado, Lucy Liu, Maria Callas, Stone Phillips, Monica Seles.

Your Birthday Year Forecast

Your ability to concentrate and focus is enhanced this year. You may, in fact, have a lot of work to do in relative solitude or you might often retreat to study, work, or think. You might be required to travel for business purposes. Thinking in realistic and practical terms is your best bet, and the need for tangible results for your efforts is strong.

You may be actively involved in teamwork and collaboration with others this year. Passions are stirred and you’re in a good position for connecting with others to accomplish your goals. There can be the beginning of a significant new relationship or the intensification of an existing romance.

You express yourself more clearly and you can be excellent at guiding and instructing others. There is a pronounced ability to order your thoughts and ideas, come up with designs, and recognize patterns. You can especially enjoy making plans, lists, and connections this year.

However, this can be a year when bursts of restlessness, rebellion, and impatience figure prominently. You have a tendency to take risks and to act on sudden impulses without considering consequences. You assert your will and individuality powerfully, and you are ready to fight for freedom. There may be changes in work schedules, or life’s circumstances could challenge you in such a way that you need to change your goals or actions. This can also be a time when you tend to resist others and challenge them if they are trying to hold you back. Arguments and confrontations are likely. Technology may be a source of irritation, and electrical appliances may break down or not work up to par.

Energy fluctuates this year. Anger can erupt seemingly from nowhere and it gives you the chance to deal with it. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, this can be an excellent year in which to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.

Helping ground you is a Mars-Saturn sextile that gives you a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. Practice or refining a technique is favored this year. The approach that seems to work best with this aspect is a step-by-step one, with modest ambitions and the appreciation of slow but steady progress. This is particularly true of mental projects and special interests. You can be prolific when your heart is engaged in what you’re doing.

This can be a good time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease. Wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year.

Making connections with others from a different background is likely to figure in the year ahead, or widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. Generosity and compassion increases and your faith is boosted. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the better good.

The year ahead can involve some surprise directions and detours. Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely this year, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results. You’re in good shape for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities. However, watch for rash, impulsive decisions.

2017 is a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It’s a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are especially able to attract others–and material things as well–this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.

2018 will be a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study, observe, research, and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, December 3rd

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

The Full Moon this morning can bring quite a scurry of activity, dear Aries. In fact, it can accelerate the days surrounding today, as well. There can be some confusion and possibly misinformation as this lunation occurs just when Mercury turns retrograde and the Sun is forming a square to Neptune. Delayed travel or issues with communications/transportation systems in your life can wreak some havoc, although this is nothing you can’t handle. Mercury begins its retrograde in your communications, travel, and education sector today, and will remain retrograde until the 22nd. In the coming weeks, look at past projects and places for answers. In a recent rush, you may have missed some vital details, and now it’s time to reconsider. Today’s energies are too loopy to fully back new beginning or big changes and decisions, so aim to lay low, observe, and process. Keep sincere detachment from the day’s events for best results. Misjudging things is entirely possible, so it’s best to leave assessments open-ended. However, this is a good time to stretch your mind and consider new possibilities, as long as you wait to act upon them.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

Mercury turns retrograde today and will remain so until the 22nd, dear Taurus. Look back before moving forward now, as there can be some important things you’ve overlooked during the rush of recent weeks. While you should wait to begin brand-new projects until after the 22nd, you can be busy refining or reworking those already in progress. Finances deserve special attention, notably shared money and property as well as loans and support payments. There may be delays or uncertainty in these areas, but the month ahead is strong for sorting out long-standing issues and for discovering hidden or overlooked resources, so be patient. Do watch for overspending or overlending. Today’s Full Moon illuminates a money or ownership matter, but there is more to the story, so wait for details to fill in before taking action.

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

Mercury, your ruler, begins its retrograde cycle today and will continue its apparent backup motion in your partnership sector until the 22nd, dear Gemini. You may be revisiting old issues or feeling stuck at times, particularly in or about a close relationship, but reflection ultimately serves you well. Do watch what you say and how you say it today during this shift which can be particularly confusing. Also happening today, a Full Moon occurs in your sign, pulling up mighty, previously buried or unacknowledged emotions. This can be a time of release, epiphany, or culmination. Pay attention to your feelings but take your time forming conclusions and decisions. It can be challenging to get a straight story from others today. Leave important decision making for a clearer time. Enjoy creative activities and avoid scheduling tasks that require a lot of focus or concentration. If you’re thinking about making big changes, sit with this decision a while longer to see what sticks.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

Mercury turns retrograde today, dear Cancer. With your work, methods, habits, or health, you’re likely to be dealing with backtracking or delays until the 22nd, but these may give you time to reconsider and refine recent decisions and ideas. A Full Moon occurs today as well, bringing strong emotions to the surface as well as awareness of feelings you’ve been burying. Listen to your intuition, but try to cut through some of the fog that’s likely to mask things for the time being. Or, wait to draw conclusions and make big decisions. Something that’s communicated today can easily be misinterpreted. There is a somewhat chaotic energy to the day, and it can make your daily routine a little muddled, or you might feel demotivated and slightly under the weather as your mind wanders. Make room for more time for fantasy and daydreams, but keep these things separate from your practical affairs today.

Leo

Leo
Leo

Mercury is retrograde today and until December 22nd, dear Leo. Take this time to get in touch with your intuition and look at old problems in new ways. All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you concerning personal finances, as well as communications with friends or groups, and this particular cycle affects matters surrounding romance, children, and creativity. If a project or relationship is not moving forward in distinct ways, it might seem like stagnation, but it’s more likely a period of review and rest. People or projects from the past can be an active focus. There can be waiting games, delays, stalling, or a catch-up period, but giving due attention to what you’ve overlooked means you end up ahead of the game, ultimately. It would be wise to go easy on speculation and spending for now. A Full Moon occurs today and reminds you of your need to pay particular attention to friends. Watch, however, that you’re not too dependent on circumstances going (or not going) your way. Some confusion is likely today, making it wise to wait before making dramatic changes.

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

The Full Moon this morning occurs in your career and reputation sector, dear Virgo. While it can be a time of increased recognition, there can be some exaggeration or misinformation happening around this time. Mercury’s retrograde station and a challenging aspect between the Sun and Neptune occur today as well, both of which point to temporarily foggy thinking and lack of clarity, so it’s best not to jump to conclusions now. Wishful or fearful thinking can play with your perceptions. Mercury’s retrograde cycle will run until the 22nd and may mean dealing with some delays and slowdowns. However, it’s a useful time for processing and digesting recent events. You may be waiting for an answer, particularly related to home or work, but this affords you time to reconsider options. The weeks ahead are excellent for returning to old projects around the home and tackling them differently. This is a strong day for freeform and behind the scenes activities, but a potentially difficult one for more worldly, practical concerns.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

Mercury turns retrograde in your communications sector today, dear Libra, and will remain retrograde in this area of your solar chart until the 22nd. This can point to some misunderstandings and redirects in the next while, but it’s great for collecting information, research, and work that involves refining and editing. Returning to unfinished projects or reconnecting with old studies, places, or people can be interesting and instructive. Delays or slowdowns may be blessings in disguise as they afford you the opportunity to think things through and to see old problems in a new way. A Full Moon occurs today as well, potentially leading to exciting discoveries or epiphanies. Take note of your feelings now, but consider that wishful or fearful thinking can obscure perceptions just for now. Communications and interactions today can leave more questions than answers. This can, in fact, be a satisfying day if you choose to entertain daydreams and avoid expecting everything to run precisely as scheduled.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

Some confusion over boundaries, limits, or differences in values can arise today, dear Scorpio, but the solution is not apparent at the moment, and you may need to wait things out. A Full Moon occurs today that can pull up strong feelings about a matter concerning ownership, shared money, or intimate relationships. It happens at the same time that Mercury turns retrograde, which can be confusing. Mercury will remain retrograde until the 22nd, and during this period, you can do some fantastic research and review of old projects and decisions. You are looking back before you move forward, and this can be a valuable exercise. There can be temptations to jump into a new purchase or experience without considering the consequences today, however, as you may not be seeing your needs realistically. Take things easy and avoid big changes for now for best results.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

Mercury turns retrograde in your sign today, dear Sagittarius, and will remain retrograde until the 22nd. Tremendous insights and possibly the beginnings of critical new ideas can emerge during this cycle. While you may be putting your foot in your mouth from time to time, you’re also working on clarifying your thoughts and ideas, and you’re getting plenty of space to do so. However, the shift today can be disorienting as it happens when a Full Moon and a Sun-Neptune square occurs as well. Look for ways to slow down and consider your spiritual needs before pushing forward. You may feel a little off track today, which can seem a nuisance, but it, too, gives you the chance to rethink certain plans or goals in creative ways. Today’s Full Moon pulls up strong feelings about a relationship or significant other.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

Today, Mercury begins its retrograde cycle that runs until the 22nd, dear Capricorn, and you’ll be doing even further ruminating over the past. The cycle itself is useful for reconsidering recent decisions and for noticing previously overlooked details. You might unwittingly reveal something that you’d prefer to keep private right now, however, and it would be wise to be exceptionally clear when it comes to communicating about your inner world now; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than talking about them prematurely. Today is complicated as Mercury’s directional shift occurs and other astrological factors point to temporary clogs and misunderstandings. Try not to schedule crucial conversations or meetings now. If focusing is difficult today, consider ways to fill your needs for more imagination, romance, or spirituality in your life. Today’s Full Moon can remind you of an approaching deadline or duty.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

Today’s Full Moon is complicated as Mercury turns retrogradeat the same time it occurs, dear Aquarius, and a Sun-Neptune square challenges us as well. Emotions that bubble up to the surface are valid, but information that’s coming to light now may not be complete. Boundaries with friends can be a little blurred right now, or you may be questioning someone’s feelings for you. Either way, there is a general air of confusion today, mostly related to your social life, and the atmosphere is ripe for misunderstandings. Avoid making any commitments that you might later regret. Changes in essential life departments are imminent, but today the changes are liable to bring some level of chaos. Wait things out, get rest, and aim to approach problems from a fresh perspective later. Mercury’s retrograde will last until the 22nd and is a good time for looking at old issues or recent decisions in a new way. Overlooked details may come to light during this period, giving you the chance to change your mind.

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

Today’s Full Moon can push buried emotions or unresolved matters to the front burner, dear Pisces. If you’ve been too focused on responsibilities to the outside world recently, you’ll get a potent reminder to tend to the hearth now. However, today is complicated as Mercury turns retrograde and the Sun and Neptune reach a square aspect. Career and reputation are strong for you these days, but there can be some backtracking or delays involved until the 22nd during Mercury’s retrograde. These slowdowns are ultimately helpful, even if they seem like a nuisance initially, as they give you the chance to catch up or notice things you missed the first time around. There can be crossed wires and annoying detours today, so aim to avoid big decisions or changes. Watch for misrepresentation.

Prepare Yourself with Your Mercury Retrograde Horoscope

Discover what’s in store for YOU while Mercury retrogrades through Sagittarius!


From December 3-22 Mercury, the planet of communication and commerce, will travel retrograde in the philosophical sign of Sagittarius. Over these weeks you’ll have an opportunity to rethink your moral stance or what might be a self-righteous perspective concerning a specific area of your life. This will also be a valuable time to slow down and make sure you’re truly assimilating a subject matter you might be studying. Anticipate delays with travel — especially if you are traveling overseas. This will be a perfect time, however, to re-test for a certification of license that is due for renewal or to visit a part of the world you never have before.

Be sure to read your sign’s horoscope below for YOUR Mercury Retrograde advice!

 

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You’ll need extra patience over the next few weeks if you are studying for an advanced degree or are in a class to test for a license or certification. Mercury will be retrograde in your 9th House of Learning, making it an ideal time to hire a tutor or form a study group to make sure you’ve got all the information embedded into your brain the way it needs to be. Also, if you’re involved in a legal matter you might experience frustrating delays. Fortunately, it’s all temporary.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

If you recently applied for a mortgage, loan, or line of credit, or if you are attempting to secure venture capital for an investment, you’ll need to be patient during this Mercury Retrograde. Expect delays or botched paperwork. You and your financial advisor or accountant might also be playing phone tag with each other for a bit. Don’t worry; everything will begin to sort out after Mercury turns direct on December 22.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Now is the time for serious relationship rehab. You and your partner might notice extra frustration with communication over the next few weeks while Mercury travels retrograde through your 7th House of Relationships. Misunderstandings and miscommunication might be the rule rather than the exception. Fortunately, you’ll also have an opportunity to go back to unfinished conversations or decisions you’ve had a stalemate on and possibly resolve them once and for all.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You might have more paperwork come across your desk than you know what to do with — especially if there are assignments that require extensive revision over the next few weeks. At first, however, you may feel quite overwhelmed at just how much you’ve got on your plate. Remember — handle one task at a time. On the plus side, this Mercury Retrograde creates a fabulous opportunity to re-organize your office space and find a more efficient and productive strategy for completing tasks and assignments.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

It’s time to clear your mind of the mental clutter that has been holding you back from experiencing the most joyful love life possible. Perhaps you still have unresolved debris from a previous relationship that you’re holding on to. If so, this Mercury Retrograde in your 5th House of Love and Dating will be a valuable time to talk to someone you trust so that you can delete the fragments of romantic wreckage from your mind once and for all. If you’re second guessing what to do in a current romance, hold off on all final decisions until after Mercury is back on track. For now, ruminate.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

You might find yourself in the middle of a miscommunication with at least one relative while Mercury retrogrades through your 4th House of Family. Recognize that it’s all too easy to misunderstand what each other’s words and intentions are right now, and do what you can to give your family member the benefit of the doubt. If there is a major decision you have to make with someone in your clan, try to put it off until after Mercury regulates his orbit. Until then, you’ll only feel as if you’re going in circles.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Out of every sign, you’ll be the one most sensitive to problems with communications during this Mercury Retrograde. That’s because Mercury will be in your message sector. As a result, you might have to contend with more of the hassles like delays, lost mail, sending an email or text to the wrong person, or even a problem negotiating a contract. Fortunately, this will also be an opportunity for you to find any errors in a writing or other communications-related project and correct them.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

You might realize that you’ve been mismanaging money recently. In fact, you might notice that money has gone missing and you’re not sure why. Before you panic, realize that it’s possible you simply forgot where the money went. Perhaps, for example, you signed up for a recurring subscription payment that might have come due. These are the kinds of financial blunders that happen when Mercury is retrograde in your earned income sector. They serve as a reminder that, when it comes to your financial health, you can’t let it run on auto-pilot.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

You might not be able to convey your vital thoughts and ideas in as seamless a way as you’d hope to during this Mercury Retrograde. This might be because you’re trying too hard or because you’re overthinking a situation. Another possibility is that all of a sudden you’re second guessing yourself too much. Take misunderstandings with others for what they are now and don’t read more into it. Perhaps a better strategy until Mercury turns direct will be to revise your personal goals and approach. Don’t implement changes until after the retrograde is over.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

If you have any creative revisions to make on a communications project, the next few weeks might be quite positive for you. With Mercury traveling retrograde in your 12th House of Escape, you’ll find a way to carve out extra time in solitude in order to rework your book or other endeavor. Another possibility is that you will go back to visit someone who has been sick in the hospital or is battling an addiction or depression. This person might have a relapse now and need your support. You’ll be there.

Aquarius (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

While Mercury is retrograde in your friendship sector, it’s possible that you and a pal will go through a phase of frustrating miscommunication. What’s equally possible, however, is that you and a friend you have been out of touch with for quite some time will now reconnect. In other news, if you’re working on a website or other technological endeavor, this will be a time to exercise extra patience. Anticipate delays and rework what you already have in place rather than forging ahead with new ideas.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

If you and your boss are not seeing eye to eye over the next few weeks take a deep breath and try to ride it out. Don’t approach him or her for a meeting and attempt to discuss your points — you’re not likely to make any progress. In fact, you’ll probably feel completely frustrated and as a result, might end up saying something to your boss your later regret. This is the time to quietly re-evaluate your professional goals. Fly under the radar with VIP’s until after Mercury has stationed direct.

What Is Mercury Retrograde?

See what happens when planet Mercury travels backward


Communication planet Mercury may be small, but it’s capable of causing big problems! Have you heard about Mercury Retrograde? It’s happening soon!Starting December 3, 2017, Mercury will turn retrograde in Taurus, and will continue backpedaling into Aries until May 3, 2017. During this time mischievous Mercury takes a backward turn, and so do our daily lives!

Mercury goes retrograde about three or four times each year, for a period of about three weeks each time. But of course Mercury isn’t really moving backward — it just appears that way from Earth.

Mercury Retrograde is really an optical illusion, but the effect it has on our lives is very real. This is because when Mercury is so close to the Sun its powers are magnified in the areas it rules.

Slow down and reflect

Planet Mercury rules communication, travel and technology, so all of these things are often disrupted during Mercury Retrograde. People get stressed out and have misunderstandings and arguments. And technology and machinery breaks down, including everything from cars to computers.

Life slows down during Mercury Retrograde — it has no choice but to slow down because the universe is blocking our forward momentum. We start reflecting and looking back instead of moving forward, and that’s why Astrology dictates Mercury Retrograde is a bad time to start new projects, go on first dates, get married, travel, sign important papers or legal documents, or make big purchases.

That said, there is plenty you can do during Mercury Retrograde. It can be a very useful  time to rest and think and plan for the future.

Full Moon in Gemini’s Horoscopes

Read your sign’s horoscope for the Full Moon in Gemini


This inquisitive Gemini Full Moon stretches your mental agility, emotional flexibility, and spiritual limits. How far are you willing to go? Read your sign’s horoscope now…

Aries Horoscope (March 21 – April 19)

The temptation to share every bright idea is strong, but sometimes a plan takes on a life of its own once it is under the light of public scrutiny. You can talk all you want but most folks are going to tune out and just nod their heads while you run your mouth. Your enthusiasm is palpable, but your thoughts are scattered all over the map near this Full Moon in Gemini. Consider a solo expedition or choose someone who is truly invested in your dreams to accompany you on a spiritual adventure. A deep well of compassion and a powerful connection to the divine are two of the many treasures you might discover if you are willing to explore the trails of your own imagination.

Taurus Horoscope (April 20 – May 20)

The noise of the holiday season is amplified by everyone’s expectations, and clear communication is essential if you want to maintain relationship harmony around this Full Moon. You may think an epic shopping spree is mandatory now, so you can shower gifts on your loved ones and impress them with your generosity. Or you might get lost in a fairytale left over from your childhood as you follow the crowd in pursuit of your happily-ever-after. There’s nothing wrong with wandering around in a dream as long as you remember what is real and what is fantasy when you wake up.

Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – June 20)

A familiar call for freedom rings in your head as you find yourself overbooked, overcommitted, and overwhelmed at this Full Moon in your sign. Old patterns of filling every inch of your mental bandwidth with a thousand distractions are keeping you from working more efficiently, both in your personal and professional spheres. Your charm is tough to resist as you flirt without even trying, but re-evaluating your priorities may mean you don’t lead anyone on in the process. Objectivity is your saving grace, but it’s nowhere to be found now as you wear your dreams on your sleeve for the whole world to see. Follow your heart but don’t leave home without your common sense.

Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – July 22)

Your dreams might be keeping you up at night as you replay your joys and your regrets, leaving you slightly sleep-deprived and extremely sensitive during the waking hours. Paranoia could creep in as you rush around trying to catch up on a long list of chores, and you may start to fear that people are hiding critical facts from you. The truth is you are the one with the big secrets now, and you are not obligated to share them until you are ready. Translate the symbols of your imagination into your next creative masterpiece.

Leo Horoscope (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Your charisma lights up the stage, and others are drawn to you like moths to a flame. You cherish your position in the community and rarely disappoint your adoring fans. Naturally, you aim to please your audience, but you are afraid of missing your private meeting with your muse if you get lost in the crowd now. Fulfilling the expectations of others can be a seductive trap, limiting you from releasing your true potential. Create for the sole sake of passionate self-expression and set your soul on fire.

Virgo Horoscope (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

You wish you could merge your personal and your professional worlds for the sake of productivity, but not everyone is on the same page near this Full Moon in Gemini. A fog of confusion permeates the atmosphere and you may find it easier to talk to strangers than friends. An overall lack of clarity regarding your most important relationships might even have you wondering who you can trust. Turn off the endless mental chatter and reassess your priorities with an objective eye. Expecting perfection sends you down a path of disillusion and disappointment. Find your center and your faith in people will return.

Libra Horoscope (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

The urge to escape the holiday hustle is irresistible and you’re packing your bags before you even know your destination. It’s easy as pie to convince yourself that you deserve a break, even if it’s just a working vacation or a change of scenery. Truth be told your daily routine is stale and overdue for a healthy rearrangement. Stretching your mental and physical boundaries empowers you to thrive in your immediate environment and act as a positive inspiration for everyone around you. Spell out your intentions to keep confusion to a minimum, but don’t expect immediate validation for your life choices. All you can really do is listen to your heart.

Scorpio Horoscope (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

The safe thing to do is to smile and keep moving now; but real growth is only possible if you shut out the external interference and push past the internal remnants of resistance regarding the topic of intimacy. Flirting is more fun than fighting, and skating around a relationship conversation might be your first preference near this Full Moon. However, sinking into your vulnerability invites more meaningful interactions where hearts and minds connect on a new playing field. Your imagination is operating on overdrive, tricking you into thinking your dreams are real. Interdimensional dancing isn’t for everyone, but you are in your element as you search for your next source of inspiration. A word of warning: If you start to believe you are a character in your creation, you may need to call for assistance.

Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

The dichotomy of independence versus relationship is palpable as you struggle to find the right balance between freedom and commitment. Mixing and mingling is impossible to avoid near this holiday Full Moon, and why would you evade the spotlight when you are loved everywhere you go? But all the superficial chit-chat and flirtatious banter can leave you feeling bittersweet when you are secretly craving a deeper connection with yourself. Give the gift of self-love by taking the time to figure out what your heart truly wants. Honoring your needs encourages others to do the same. The roots of compassion start within.

Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

You may go through the motions of performing your regular routine, but it is clearly obvious that your mind is not on the work at hand. Your family and friends do their best to keep you grounded, but your brain continues to run a full-length film of epic proportions in your imagination. Mistakes and misunderstandings happen when your head isn’t in the game. The truth is, the more you try to drown out this cosmic distraction with pragmatism and chores, the louder and bigger it gets. Stop pretending everything is normal and your perspective will start to take a philosophical turn. Meandering down a spiritual path allows you to discover treasure beyond your wildest dreams.

Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Opportunities are knocking on every door around this Full Moon, but you can only answer so many at once. Knowing when to say no is critical now, but knowing when to say yes is even more important when it comes to love affairs or creative pursuits. Romance is on your mind, but commitment isn’t; be clear about your intentions right from the start. A foot-loose and fancy-free lifestyle might be loads of fun now, but it can also keep your heart from getting invested. Overindulgence and overexpansion may send you wandering down the wrong path if you’re unwilling to follow your moral compass. Choose quality over quantity and meaningful over more.

Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 – March 20)

You are experiencing the cosmic-twin energy in a very personal way as one half of you wants to remain curled up at home watching your fantasies, while the other half of you thrives on being needed at work or in the community. An irrepressible yearning for variety may clash with previously scheduled commitments, but fun can be found in cleverly rearranging your plans to accommodate fickle tastes and inquiring minds. You delight in making others smile, but in the process of spreading glee your feelings might get misplaced in all the glitter and lights. Give yourself the gift of solitude when your heart requests it.

Full Moon in Gemini: A Kaleidoscope of Dreams

Read your sign’s horoscope for the Full Moon in Gemini


The surreal winds of the Gemini Full Moon on December 3, 2017, oppose the idealistic rays of the Sagittarius Sun, sparking burning curiosities, fickle flirtations, and endless conversations. The cosmic noise factor is amplified by Mercury turning retrograde the same day, leaving everyone a bit dazed and confused for the next three weeks. Also during this Full Moon, a blurry Moon-Neptune square plus a fuzzy Jupiter-Neptune trine magnify dreams, adding a wide-angle distortion filter to the picture; it’s almost impossible to see the truth even when it is staring back at you. This is a metaphysical showdown — facts vs. beliefs, spiritual vs. superficial, and clarity vs. illusion. Dancing with a myriad of dualities can be an entertaining and enlightening experience if emotional flexibility, mental agility, and a swift wit are always within reach.

Time warp

Time travel may seem like a viable option while the Gemini Full Moon lights up the galaxy, and mystical Neptune weaves enchanting threads from the past, present, and future into a cosmic tapestry where memories intersect with dreams. Mental Mercury’s standstill during this busy Full Moon tosses a monkey wrench into an already overpacked calendar, warning you to doublecheck packages and plans as you prepare for the holidays ahead. Alleviate Mercury’s distracting influence by exercising the retrograde remedies of discernment, discretion, and discipline. Observing the “rule of re” allows you to harness the true power of this often-misaligned planetary cycle. Steer clear of new business while you realign your priorities, reassess your finances, re-evaluate your relationships, review your achievements, reconnect with friends, and recommit to your dreams. Personalize this list to fit your needs and you will have a master plan for conquering the extra stress of this holiday season.

Infinite realities

This perpetually curious Gemini Full Moon casts variety as the spice of life and a plethora of possibilities sparkle in its illuminating light. Talking seems to be all the rage with everyone having their own cause to promote or philosophy to espouse, but it all starts to sound like radio static if everyone is speaking at once. Repeating past stories or forgetting significant details is pretty much guaranteed now, but the distraction ratio is off the charts so it’s easy to overlook mistakes. Resist the temptation to fill up the space with lots of words if your message is tired or of little substance. Exercise your creativity by adding an intelligent voice to the debate. Tap into your spiritual side for new answers to old questions.

Neptune, the planet of magic and illusion, squares off with this flighty Gemini Full Moon, prompting you to wonder what is real and what is imagined. Permissive Jupiter’s presence in the picture encourages you to explore your world with relish and abandon, but extreme measures must be taken in moderation. Embarking on an adventure is a logistical nightmare now, but you can travel anywhere you wish in your mind. Stepping out into the great wide open may feel frightening at first — which is why so many reach for an easy escape. Resist the temptation to give in to your fears and stretch your spiritual muscles, instead. All that glitters isn’t gold but your dreams are a priceless resource. With so many worldly distractions at your feet, consciously choosing a path of enlightenment sets an inspiring example. Experiment with the concept that energy flows where attention goes by centering your focus on what matters most. Your imagination is the doorway to your heart.

This inquisitive Gemini Full Moon stretches your mental agility, emotional flexibility, and spiritual limits. How far are you willing to go? Read your sign’s horoscope now…

Aries Horoscope (March 21 – April 19)

The temptation to share every bright idea is strong, but sometimes a plan takes on a life of its own once it is under the light of public scrutiny. You can talk all you want but most folks are going to tune out and just nod their heads while you run your mouth. Your enthusiasm is palpable, but your thoughts are scattered all over the map near this Full Moon in Gemini. Consider a solo expedition or choose someone who is truly invested in your dreams to accompany you on a spiritual adventure. A deep well of compassion and a powerful connection to the divine are two of the many treasures you might discover if you are willing to explore the trails of your own imagination.

Taurus Horoscope (April 20 – May 20)

The noise of the holiday season is amplified by everyone’s expectations, and clear communication is essential if you want to maintain relationship harmony around this Full Moon. You may think an epic shopping spree is mandatory now, so you can shower gifts on your loved ones and impress them with your generosity. Or you might get lost in a fairytale left over from your childhood as you follow the crowd in pursuit of your happily-ever-after. There’s nothing wrong with wandering around in a dream as long as you remember what is real and what is fantasy when you wake up.

Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – June 20)

A familiar call for freedom rings in your head as you find yourself overbooked, overcommitted, and overwhelmed at this Full Moon in your sign. Old patterns of filling every inch of your mental bandwidth with a thousand distractions are keeping you from working more efficiently, both in your personal and professional spheres. Your charm is tough to resist as you flirt without even trying, but re-evaluating your priorities may mean you don’t lead anyone on in the process. Objectivity is your saving grace, but it’s nowhere to be found now as you wear your dreams on your sleeve for the whole world to see. Follow your heart but don’t leave home without your common sense.

Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – July 22)

Your dreams might be keeping you up at night as you replay your joys and your regrets, leaving you slightly sleep-deprived and extremely sensitive during the waking hours. Paranoia could creep in as you rush around trying to catch up on a long list of chores, and you may start to fear that people are hiding critical facts from you. The truth is you are the one with the big secrets now, and you are not obligated to share them until you are ready. Translate the symbols of your imagination into your next creative masterpiece.

Leo Horoscope (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Your charisma lights up the stage, and others are drawn to you like moths to a flame. You cherish your position in the community and rarely disappoint your adoring fans. Naturally, you aim to please your audience, but you are afraid of missing your private meeting with your muse if you get lost in the crowd now. Fulfilling the expectations of others can be a seductive trap, limiting you from releasing your true potential. Create for the sole sake of passionate self-expression and set your soul on fire.

Virgo Horoscope (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

You wish you could merge your personal and your professional worlds for the sake of productivity, but not everyone is on the same page near this Full Moon in Gemini. A fog of confusion permeates the atmosphere and you may find it easier to talk to strangers than friends. An overall lack of clarity regarding your most important relationships might even have you wondering who you can trust. Turn off the endless mental chatter and reassess your priorities with an objective eye. Expecting perfection sends you down a path of disillusion and disappointment. Find your center and your faith in people will return.

Libra Horoscope (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

The urge to escape the holiday hustle is irresistible and you’re packing your bags before you even know your destination. It’s easy as pie to convince yourself that you deserve a break, even if it’s just a working vacation or a change of scenery. Truth be told your daily routine is stale and overdue for a healthy rearrangement. Stretching your mental and physical boundaries empowers you to thrive in your immediate environment and act as a positive inspiration for everyone around you. Spell out your intentions to keep confusion to a minimum, but don’t expect immediate validation for your life choices. All you can really do is listen to your heart.

Scorpio Horoscope (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

The safe thing to do is to smile and keep moving now; but real growth is only possible if you shut out the external interference and push past the internal remnants of resistance regarding the topic of intimacy. Flirting is more fun than fighting, and skating around a relationship conversation might be your first preference near this Full Moon. However, sinking into your vulnerability invites more meaningful interactions where hearts and minds connect on a new playing field. Your imagination is operating on overdrive, tricking you into thinking your dreams are real. Interdimensional dancing isn’t for everyone, but you are in your element as you search for your next source of inspiration. A word of warning: If you start to believe you are a character in your creation, you may need to call for assistance.

Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

The dichotomy of independence versus relationship is palpable as you struggle to find the right balance between freedom and commitment. Mixing and mingling is impossible to avoid near this holiday Full Moon, and why would you evade the spotlight when you are loved everywhere you go? But all the superficial chit-chat and flirtatious banter can leave you feeling bittersweet when you are secretly craving a deeper connection with yourself. Give the gift of self-love by taking the time to figure out what your heart truly wants. Honoring your needs encourages others to do the same. The roots of compassion start within.

Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

You may go through the motions of performing your regular routine, but it is clearly obvious that your mind is not on the work at hand. Your family and friends do their best to keep you grounded, but your brain continues to run a full-length film of epic proportions in your imagination. Mistakes and misunderstandings happen when your head isn’t in the game. The truth is, the more you try to drown out this cosmic distraction with pragmatism and chores, the louder and bigger it gets. Stop pretending everything is normal and your perspective will start to take a philosophical turn. Meandering down a spiritual path allows you to discover treasure beyond your wildest dreams.

Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Opportunities are knocking on every door around this Full Moon, but you can only answer so many at once. Knowing when to say no is critical now, but knowing when to say yes is even more important when it comes to love affairs or creative pursuits. Romance is on your mind, but commitment isn’t; be clear about your intentions right from the start. A foot-loose and fancy-free lifestyle might be loads of fun now, but it can also keep your heart from getting invested. Overindulgence and overexpansion may send you wandering down the wrong path if you’re unwilling to follow your moral compass. Choose quality over quantity and meaningful over more.

Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 – March 20)

You are experiencing the cosmic-twin energy in a very personal way as one half of you wants to remain curled up at home watching your fantasies, while the other half of you thrives on being needed at work or in the community. An irrepressible yearning for variety may clash with previously scheduled commitments, but fun can be found in cleverly rearranging your plans to accommodate fickle tastes and inquiring minds. You delight in making others smile, but in the process of spreading glee your feelings might get misplaced in all the glitter and lights. Give yourself the gift of solitude when your heart requests it.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, November 29th

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

The Moon in your sign brings attention your way, dear Aries, and allows you to express yourself more spontaneously. Even so, it can also bring out your impatience, especially with Mars, your ruler, in challenging aspect with Chiron and approaching an opposition with Uranus. The next couple of days can be a little tense, particularly in close relationships. You can be impatient with diffidence or indirectness. Today, there can be a tendency to push when someone backs away or to retreat when someone pushes you. This is not an intentional game, but rather a reflection of uncertainty about what you want. It’s not the best time for healthy relating patterns so you might consider that even though you crave company more than usual these days, you might need some personal space right now.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

You’re in a retiring mood again today, dear Taurus, or perhaps a little emotionally distant. There can be quite a few distractions, however, and a general lack of direction, so that it’s better to avoid detail-oriented work or activities, if possible. This way, dreamy states of mind can serve as pleasing detours from the strains, pressures, or monotony of daily life. However, try not to sign anything or commit yourself to what appear to be amazing plans now, as they may turn out to be impractical ventures down the road. This is not the time to get clear answers from others, and perhaps even yourself, as motivation levels may be temporarily down. If there’s been unrest at work or in your personal life, the next two days can see you pushed to deal with it.

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

You’re seeking out pleasant company again today, Gemini, but there can be some tension brewing in your social life. If so, it’s likely to reach a head tomorrow or the next. For now, feeling a little off may be the first sign. You might struggle with a decision, as there is a sense that you need to give something up in order to gain something else. There might also be a dilemma between responsibility and pleasure today. Do your best to relax so that you can envision things more clearly and weigh the pros and cons. This way, you’ll more readily come to a compromise rather than an extreme. A relaxed attitude is essential now, not only for yourself but with others as well. Pushing can lead to mistakes or social blunders today.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

With the Moon at the top of your solar chart, you can feel some pressure to do your best, dear Cancer. You’re aware of extra pairs of eyes looking your way with the Moon in this highly visible part of your chart! There can be some tensions brewing between your personal and public or professional lives which can reach a head tomorrow. For now, hints are happening around you, so take notes! Mars and Chiron in an awkward angle can stimulate a subtle feeling of imbalance, and you can feel at once pressured to make decisions revolving around family or your personal life and confused about your next step. You are definitely not in the mood to be pushed or prodded. Hesitation and doubt are not bad words – sometimes they are necessary delays that allow ourselves to catch up with what’s going on around us, and this may be what’s happening now.

Leo

Leo
Leo

You’re once again seeking out-of-the-ordinary activities and experiences today, dear Leo, even if this merely happens on the mental plane. However, there can be tension brewing regarding differences of opinion or about having too much on your plate. While this is likely to reach a head tomorrow, today you can sense some unrest. In fact, essential clues and hints may drop now that better prepare you for any standoffs or big revelations that might occur later. Financial or intimate matters can be confusing or worrisome, or you may be at a loss at how to broach a tricky subject. Not knowing where you stand in these areas of life may be subtly undermining your current interests and projects.

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

Tensions with money, ownership, or workload and shared responsibilities are mounting now, Virgo. While this may take another day or two to play out, you’re likely to confront some of these matters today, even if this happens indirectly. An awkward angle between Mars and Chiron points to the need to make adjustments rather than bold moves. Others may not be clear with you today, but consider that they may not be in touch with what it is they truly desire. Try not to worry about mixed signals and instead wait until others have sorted things out. Asserting yourself may have awkward results since this is not the best day to understand your own desires, either. This also applies to material desires, so you might want to put off making larger purchases just for now.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

The Moon is in your opposing sign all day, dear Libra, and while you may not be at a peak energetically speaking, you’re more invested than usual in your close relationships. With Mars in your sign in an awkward angle to Chiron, however, there can be some difficulty fulfilling your desires, possibly because you know you want something but you can’t entirely define what that something is! You might also struggle with some self-doubt. Treat any hesitance you feel now as a chance to slow down and make adjustments. Solutions to problems may not be immediately apparent. There can be a feeling of being delayed or blocked, and patience is necessary. Asserting yourself feels complicated today. Plans may need some reassessment, and you might want to look within to find answers to what it is that is holding you back. Mars is building to an opposition with Uranus, and self-reflection now can pay off later.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

The Moon in your work and health sector again today keeps you interested in solving problems and ironing out details, dear Scorpio. Even so, a small storm is brewing related to your work-rest balance, and it’s best to think of ways to improve the situation. Confidence may not be above-average, particularly when it has to do with any recent concerns in your love life, with children, or a creative project, so it is still better to wait things out before pushing forward. Hesitance may be your friend now as it gives you a chance to think things through. However, emotional energy can drive you later today, and you can feel invigorated.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

While the Moon in your creative sector is energizing, Sagittarius, some signs are pointing to the need for extra rest today, so aim for balance. A Mars-Uranus clash is brewing, and while it’ll only reach a head tomorrow and the next day, you’re likely to feel something is a little off today. It’s not an appropriate time for pushing personal plans ahead with this kind of uncertainty hanging over the day. There can be some feelings of being unsettled in your social or romantic life. If you have doubts about a matter today, it may be a sign that you need to wait or delay important decisions. Take the time to consider ways you may be holding back from pursuing your social goals.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

The Moon spends another day in your home and family sector, dear Capricorn, and you need a little extra rest. Decisions can be difficult to make today. There can be doubts about your next step even though a feeling of being unsettled or unsatisfied is clear. It’s unlikely to be a day of bravery and confidence, but rather one of adjustments. Be clear in communications today, especially in a formal or official capacity, as misunderstandings can be costly now. Look for ways that you may be shooting yourself in the foot when it comes to advancing your goals, as fear of going your own way or asserting yourself may be holding you back from thriving.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

There can be a strong desire to get away from it all today, dear Aquarius, or to break the routine in some significant way, but you may not feel you have the means to do so, or you could be indecisive about where you want to go or what you want to do. Restlessness is likely, particularly if you’ve felt tied down or overwhelmed by studies or mundane paperwork in recent days. Consider, also, whether fear of stating your beliefs is holding you back from a healthy conversation. Find small ways to settle yourself today, as Mars and Uranus will meet in opposition in just two days, and self-reflection and understanding will help any future revelations feel far less abrupt.

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

While the Moon in your comfortable solar second house encourages you to seek out predictability today, dear Pisces, you can feel a little off-center with a Mars-Chiron aspect in play, especially as the day advances. Confidence levels may not be up to par. Situations and people might leave you feeling drained or confused. Try to get in touch with what it is you truly want, as not knowing can, in fact, be the source of restlessness. Look for clues that you may be holding on too tightly to a particular attitude, person, or thing, and what you might do to correct this imbalance. Watch for a tendency to hold onto anger in an effort to show you care.

 

 

 

If You Were Born Today, November 29

You are charismatic, warm, articulate, and extremely intuitive. You love to make people laugh, and come across as fun and charming, if a little sarcastic. You have a strong sense of responsibility and worry about the future more than is typical of a Sagittarius personality. However, your sense of fun always comes shining through. You like to stay informed and on top of things. When you’re not “in the know” you are a lot less confident. Learning about anything and everything is a life-long hobby. Famous people born today: C. S. Lewis, Howie Mandel, Chuck Mangione, Andrew McCarthy, Garry Shandling, Anna Faris.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!

Something big is in the works regarding your love or social life. You’ll have a chance to heal old wounds with regards to love and friendship this year. You’re also bound to find new ways of making money. Relationships are mutually beneficial and naturally equal, fair, and balanced during this period of your life. There can be a stronger inclination towards togetherness and sharing.

Your ability to concentrate and focus is enhanced this year. You may, in fact, have a lot of work to do in relative solitude or you might often retreat to study, work, or think. You might be required to travel for business purposes. Thinking in realistic and practical terms is your best bet, and the need for tangible results for your efforts is strong.

You may be actively involved in teamwork and collaboration with others this year. Passions are stirred and you’re in a good position for connecting with others to accomplish your goals. There can be the beginning of a significant new relationship or the intensification of an existing romance.

You express yourself more clearly and you can be excellent at guiding and instructing others. There is a pronounced ability to order your thoughts and ideas, come up with designs, and recognize patterns. You can especially enjoy making plans, lists, and connections this year.

However, this can be a year when bursts of restlessness, rebellion, and impatience figure prominently. You have a tendency to take risks and to act on sudden impulses without considering consequences. You assert your will and individuality powerfully, and you are ready to fight for freedom. There may be changes in work schedules, or life’s circumstances could challenge you in such a way that you need to change your goals or actions. This can also be a time when you tend to resist others and challenge them if they are trying to hold you back. Arguments and confrontations are likely. Technology may be a source of irritation, and electrical appliances may break down or not work up to par.

Energy fluctuates this year. Anger can erupt seemingly from nowhere and it gives you the chance to deal with it. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, this can be an excellent year in which to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.

This can be a good time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease. Wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year.

Making connections with others from a different background is likely to figure in the year ahead, or widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. Generosity and compassion increases and your faith is boosted. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the better good.

Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely this year, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results. The year is good for enjoying social or love opportunities. Your love or social life grows and satisfies. You’re in good shape for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities. Cooperation brings rewards more than usual.

2017 is a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of discovery and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise, promote, and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken for the better. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed; or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, diversify, mingle.

2018 will be a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It’s a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are especially able to attract others–and material things as well–this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and in the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.

 

 

Get A Jump On Tomorrow….

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, November 30th

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

Today is far more intense than yesterday, dear Aries, and you can use this to your advantage with meaningful work or projects. Even so, today and tomorrow bring rebellious themes as Mars, your fiery ruler, opposes Uranus. This influence occurs approximately every two years and is a time for releasing frustrations if we’ve been feeling restricted, but how you express yourself now is what makes or breaks the day. You may feel offended or blocked. An issue that’s been brewing in your life can come to a head. This may take the form of a conflict in a relationship. There can be some tension as something pushes for a resolution. Asserting your independence is your knee-jerk reaction with Uranus in your sign. However, it’s important to avoid dramatic actions until the dust settles. Impatience is a liability now. Pace yourself and avoid recklessness to prevent accidents or arguments. Your energy, though up and down, might be harnessed to do something creative or productive, and if you manage, you could move mountains.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

Mars in your solar sixth house has been helpful and challenging at once, dear Taurus, as you can get through your work with enthusiasm, but you might also take costly shortcuts or display impatience with others. Today and tomorrow, this latter tendency is very strong. Anger can erupt seemingly from nowhere but is rooted in issues that you’ve buried and haven’t yet confronted — or haven’t yet resolved. Watch for a tendency to act out in ways that get you in trouble, as you may unwittingly take on the role of instigator. You could find yourself fixated on an unresolved, frustrating matter from the past, and pressured to put it behind you. People can be a little temperamental today, and it’s probably better if you remain flexible when it comes to schedules and plans, as they may not be running smoothly. You could be tempted to take shortcuts with your work, but instead of saving time, they’re inclined to cost you in the long run. Take a breath and don’t let impatience rule the day, even if the pace around you is hectic or you’re frustrated with co-workers or routines. Avoid pushing your body too hard, but do release frustration through creative channels such as safe exercise.

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

People in your life may be unreliable right now, dear Gemini, or your social life can feel like a bit of a rollercoaster today and tomorrow. It’s also possible that you’re undecided about a friendship and you’re sending or receiving mixed signals. Stubborn or rebellious behavior is a strong possibility now, whether it’s you or a friend who’s the instigator! Aim to be assertive rather than rebellious — that way, you’re living your life on your terms rather than living life in reaction to others. Also, strive to avoid short-sighted decision making, which is a strong inclination under today’s astrological weather. There is undoubtedly a tendency for people to be on a short fuse if they are feeling blocked or restricted. Feelings and desires can emerge abruptly, but you can choose to express them calmly for better results. If something is building inside you that needs a release, finding healthy ways to communicate it can be cleansing.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

A Mars-Uranus opposition influencing the day brings “enough is enough!” energy to your life, dear Cancer, particularly related to family, home, work, and responsibilities. Something that’s been brewing inside of you needs a release, and you’re not putting up with it any longer. There can be a conflict involving family or work-family balance. Responsibilities are strong on you, and you may be vying for particular freedoms. It’s important to know yourself and what anger or resentment is brewing inside of you, as these things can be triggered today. Free yourself of things that are holding you back from success, but do so prudently. While it may seem that you can hitch a free ride today, this is likely an illusion. Assess risks carefully, and aim to be as tolerant as possible. Do your best not to react from a place of rebellion, which can be a knee-jerk reaction, and avoid abruptness or a defiant attitude for best results. Seek out creative or productive ways to release pent-up frustrations.

Leo

Leo
Leo

This can be a time for experiencing new and exciting changes, dear Leo, but there can be some stress today as your needs for variety, independence, and freedom can dominate. Mundane tasks capture your attention, but the urge to get out and about is bound to grab hold of you as well. Finding a balance can be difficult, but necessary to regain peace of mind. Avoid letting others force a change on you; instead, be as honest as you can with yourself and identify what you need to do to move forward. Holding on too tightly to a specific method, belief, or point of view may not be worth the tension. Know when to let go, and avoid pushing. Short-sightedness can be a problem today and tomorrow. However, energies presiding now can also stimulate a strong desire to put something behind you. Sitting on anger might invite mishaps, accidents, and arguments. Sounding off or rushing out angry messages can cause real damage. As such, a middle ground should be sought. Make room for the possibility of real breakthroughs now.

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

You’re more inclined than usual to stand your ground and assert your desires these days, dear Virgo, as well as defend your honor! If others are not doing their share or if you can’t entirely rely on someone or a source of support, you’re likely to express your frustration now. You may feel you’ve been shouldering far too many responsibilities and people around you are in and out as they please. Today, a Mars-Uranus opposition can bring tension to a head. The temptation is to react quickly and perhaps rebelliously, and while the shock value of this might have a few desirable effects, a more mindful approach to frustrations has better odds. While you can feel a strong desire for a change of scenery, there may be part of you that is worried or fearful of breaking new territory and making changes. This is a time to think carefully about your life and consider ways to free yourself of restrictions that are holding you back from happiness. A fresh start can only happen after clearing out resentment and other negatively-charged energy. Try not to be dependent on others for answers and resolutions, however as this keeps you in a state of unrest. Look for ways to manage your outlook instead.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

Conflicts with a partner, special friend, or advisor may present themselves now, dear Libra, with Mars in your sign facing off against Uranus. This can be a time when you feel you’re putting in all the effort and others are in and out as they please or not as committed, and it can be frustrating. You may be in reaction mode, but it’s better to keep your head rather than act impulsively or out of anger. Others may seem unreliable today, or they could bring surprises that feel off or unsettling. If someone tries to box you in or shows displays of independence, you are likely to make it known that you are going your own way! You could be quite ambitious about cutting out difficult situations from your life and wanting to put them behind you. Try not to put unrealistic pressure or time limits on something that doesn’t need to be rushed. This is a time for clearing the decks so that you can go forward with more confidence and less burden. Use self-restraint as much as possible today, but if you need to clear the air, aim to do so mindfully.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

Today, you may lack the energy, time, or desire needed to achieve your goals, dear Scorpio, and facing a chaotic schedule can pull up all sorts of frustration. Something could trigger buried anger or resentment, and this can very well be a change of –or overloaded– schedule. If you’re not certain about being direct with others, then impatience can be a byproduct. Pushing yourself beyond your limits can lead to a variety of health complaints, so do your best to learn what those limits are. If you can manage it, try to work independently or arrange things so that you can work at your own pace. There is a tendency now to act or react without considering the consequences, but behind all of this is an important issue that has been building and needs some release. How you clear the air determines whether this is disruptive or helpful. Express yourself in some way, but try to do so constructively. Don’t be an agitator, but you shouldn’t be a doormat either. Find a balance, and deal with issues so that they don’t negatively impact your health, energy, and work.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

Restlessness and discontent are likely today, dear Sagittarius, but they can push you to make positive changes and improvements, or to release adverse situations or frustrations and put them behind you. Getting to this positive place today and tomorrow may mean navigating a bumpy road. For some of you, the grass looks greener elsewhere. There can be erratic behavior in others or sudden events that take you by surprise. A clash or conflict can arise now related to romance, the pursuit of pleasure, or friends. Energy in your social life is strong today, but it can also be excessive and a little volatile. However, if impatience and impulsiveness are resisted, it can be a good time for discovering, likely through relationships with others, what you can no longer tolerate and need to put behind you. Act with self-control today as much as possible for best results. It would be wise to guard against gambling and taking risks. Be patient with yourself and others. However, if something has been building within and can no longer be accepted, do release it in as positive a way as possible, as clearing the air may be just what’s needed for a fresh start.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

There may be obstacles or people standing in the way of your path to your goals these days, dear Capricorn, and it can be challenging to keep your temper today. You may become too focused on the way you think things should be, and too impatient for these things to materialize right now. Double check that you’re not expecting too much too soon. Crankiness tends to come from inner restlessness and a desire to break free from restrictive circumstances, even though you have been highly motivated to reach your goals. This may be a signal to release pressure. As well, frustrations today can alert you to the need to understand yourself and your desires better. If you’ve been hotly pursuing something but aren’t honestly sure in your heart that you want it, then you’re likely to feel a little off kilter now. Watch for impulsive or hot-headed moves and short-sighted decisions, and listen to your heart instead. Be honest about what’s bothering you, but keep things cool. Recently buried and building frustrations can surface, but if handled well, they help clear a path for you to start again feeling fresh and unburdened.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

Consider that freeing yourself from certain problems that have been weighing you down can be liberating this week, dear Aquarius. A Mars-Uranus opposition occurs now, and it comes every two years or so, encouraging you to release pent-up frustrations. Inner discontent is possible if you want to branch out but find it difficult to get where you want to go, possibly due to disorganization in your daily life or upset schedules. Disagreements can put you in the position that you’d rather go your own way, and others may be challenging your independence or freedom, or you perceive things this way. While frustrations are real and probably have been building, it’s how you handle them at this critical time that will determine whether you go forward refreshed or bothered. Be a little more cautious than usual with mechanical things, driving, walking, and the like, as impatience can trip you up, sometimes literally. Haste makes waste when it comes to paperwork and communications, so try not to miss important steps. Watch for the temptation to sound off if something that’s communicated frustrates you. However, if you need a push to make a change, and you’re confident it’s coming from the heart and not from pride or a whim, then this can be a time to break free.

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

Patience is in short supply with a Mars-Uranus opposition influencing today and tomorrow, dear Pisces. Someone who is in the position to affect your income can frustrate you now, or you feel tense about being dependent on someone’s support or approval. Some of you are craving more financial freedom. Taking a calculated risk is one thing, and jumping into something blind is another. If the stakes are low, not much can be lost, except perhaps a bit of pride. If the stakes are high, wait for a day when your judgment and patience are improved. Whatever the case may be, essential changes that put you back into the driver’s seat are imminent, with respect, of course, for important others’ contributions and input. The temptation may be to take quick action, and this can be great if you’re in touch with your heart, but may not be wise if you haven’t given something enough thought or if you’re acting from a place of ego. Watch or impulsiveness related to personal finances or an intimate relationship. Listen to any buried desires that emerge now, but try not to act on sudden impulses that seem to come out of nowhere. Clear out the junk now, carefully and respectfully, so that you can begin attracting enlightening, fresh, and positive experiences.

 

Tarot Card of the Day

Three of Wands


This suit, most often called “Wands” and sometimes called “Rods” or “Staves,” represents initiative, ambition, drive and desire. This is the suit of enterprise and risk-taking.

A Three in this suit symbolizes an inner balance that allows you to feel more optimistic about new endeavors you are committed to, or want to commit to. In the illustrated Tarots, the human character is standing on his balcony, watching ships leave the harbor, loaded with his goods for far-off ports, dreaming of the fortune he will reap if all goes well. Summon the optimism within you.

This energy must be patient and trusting, because he or she will have to wait some time to find out how the ships have fared. Meanwhile, a lot of resources are tied up until they return with the bounty. Only those truly confident in their ideas and abilities would undertake such a risk. This card represents the energy a person needs to take on great adventures and accomplish noble (and remunerative) deeds.

A detail that sometimes appears in the more esoteric Tarots is a winged wand with two snakes twining around it, called the Caduceus, which is Mercury’s wand. This is an ancient symbol of the healer or shaman, one who can travel between the worlds to rescue souls from death or possession. Perhaps the feeling of empowerment this card represents points to the internal mechanisms of self-healing. Perhaps it refers to the courage it takes to be an entrepreneur or an inventor, which is in itself a magical process — bringing not only opportunity for success, but also an awakening to higher potentials.

December 2017 Tarot Forecast

Read your monthly and weekly Tarot readings for December 2017

december monthly tarot reading

Before we get started with the reading, here’s a note on the deck pictured in this month’s spread. These cards are from the Albano-Waite deck, a Rider-Waite clone first produced in 1968 by Frankie Albano and his company Tarot Productions. The deck, also released in miniature size and giant size (majors only), features extremely saturated, almost psychedelic coloring to the classic imagery and a beautiful gold sun stamp on the card backs. Unfortunately, this deck went out of print shortly after its creation. Years later, U.S. Games picked the deck back up for reproduction. You can tell the difference between versions in the image clarity and the box design; the vintage box front has no deck title, just an image of the Sun card.

Here’s a quick look at the overall spread for December:

Theme for the month: Four of Pentacles

The Four of Pentacles is such an interesting card to pull for this month’s theme. This can be a card of frugality, expressing concerns about holding on to the wealth and resources that have been amassed. That seems relevant in a month of holidays when many people are spending their hard-earned money on elaborate celebrations and travel. It is also a time when we traditionally show our love for others through gifts of material goods, additionally fitting for this card that is also concerned with identity, and how we humans express that identity through material possessions. These meanings are clearly illustrated in this deck’s imagery — the suit symbol is connected to each part of the figure’s being: head, heart, and foot. The central Pentacle is tightly gripped in the figure’s arms.

Expressing identity through tangible objects is very natural, and is not automatically the same thing as materialism, though that is a caution of the Four of Pentacles. While it is true that things we own can demonstrate our values and personalities to others, if we measure who we are and how we are doing solely by what we possess, other aspects of existence are left underdeveloped. This externalization of self-worth can also lead to stinginess and hoarding. What might really be at play here is a fear of loss. This sort of behavior often manifests when we feel powerless or out of control. If we hold tightly to what we have, it seems like we might be able to control our circumstances better. When other aspects of self-concept have been ignored, we have nothing else to rely on should we suffer a loss, making it harder to recover and resulting in a crisis of identity.

Meditation on the Four of Pentacles:

For those of us who celebrate gift-giving holidays, December is a month of giving but also often anticipation of getting. Kids make lists for Santa weeks in advance, and these lists often include extravagant items that strike fear into the hearts of parents on a budget. Relationships seem made or broken by the expression conveyed through the presents we give each other.

How do you balance expectation and fear of disappointment with a very different fear of living beyond your means?

Weekly Tarot card
December 1-7: Six of Pentacles reversed

Here’s this card again! We saw the Six of Pentacles last month as well, and it does seem that some of the lessons or struggles present in November are still with us currently. This is not unexpected. November marked the start of a chain of busy holidays; this year a number of stores where I live started merchandising for Christmas even before Halloween, and now are in full-swing with decorations and many additional products. In our spread, we have the Six of Pentacles positioned in reverse, which seems in direct alignment with this month’s theme card. I can’t help thinking about the fine line between holiday spirit and holiday pressure — pressure to find the perfect present for everyone on my list, pressure to get everything done on time… By some people’s standards, I’m already late if I’m still doing my holiday shopping now! And as noted above, if you’re operating on a budget, and many of us are, including everyone you care about and finding just the right thing for each of them can be tough.

When this card is reversed, it often indicates mishandling of resources, so I’m taking its appearance here as a warning. What sort of creative solutions might we find to honor those we love with clever gifts that don’t have to drain our resources? Last month’s appearance of this card asked us to think about different ways we could serve others. Generosity does not have to be financial, even though Pentacles are the suit of tangible concerns. There are many ways to show love. We can give others our time and energy to help improve the quality of their tangible existence. We can use our time and skills to make something for loved ones. People often say that it’s the thought that counts, but this is usually meant to excuse a lack of effort. If we put care into what we make, these gifts will be seen as both thoughtful AND enjoyable.

This card in reverse can also suggest greed, but in the current context, I would interpret that a little differently. Pressure to perform as expected can cause many of us to withdraw. I sense fear of a sort in this card, too. Perhaps we fear that others will not return our efforts of generosity. Giving to get or giving only because we received is a strangely deceptive cycle. Overall, this card is a reminder that how we treat others is important. A balance of the material and spiritual is essential for our well-being, and the act of giving supports that balance.

Considerations for the reversed Six of Pentacles:

1. What actions by others make you feel loved?
2. How do you typically show your love for others?
3. Think about those closest to you, people you would want to demonstrate your care for with a gift of some sort. What do you think makes each of them feel loved? How could you tailor your gift to match this?

Should You Start a Daily Tarot Ritual?

Learn what a daily Tarot reading ritual can do for you!


The things you do every day are the things that can impact your life the most. Through our daily rituals and routines, we create a sense of consistency and mindfulness that helps keep us centered when negative emotions, sudden developments, and surprise circumstances come up that could knock us off kilter. Yoga, meditation, prayer, cooking, exercise … these are all great rituals that, when done daily, can create a real sense of health, stability, and purpose for you. But perhaps one of the most beneficial daily rituals of all is a daily Tarot reading!

Any Tarot reading can provide an incredible amount of insight and understanding into whatever situation you’re facing. But daily Tarot readings go even further — by identifying the cards and messages that come up for you on a regular basis, start to realize the patterns in your life, the things that affect you most frequently, and all the ways you tend to react. When you can identify these patterns, you have all the power to embrace them or change them!

5 Reasons to start a daily Tarot reading ritual

1. Set intentions

We’ve all had those days when we wake up late, throw ourselves together, and stumble into our routine unprepared and unfocused. The problem is, those days usually don’t smooth out. The way you start your day — are you eager or are you exhausted? Optimistic or pessimistic? Open or closed off? — can totally dictate the day you have. You cannot control everything that will come up, but you can control the way you move through it. Pausing to set intentions for the day through a daily Tarot reading grounds your heart and mind so you enter every situation that arises with clarity and mindfulness.

2. See the patterns

It’s easy to compartmentalize our days, taking everything that happens from morning to night and tucking it away, in order to start fresh the next day. But when we look at each day as isolated from all the rest, we limit our ability to see the big picture of what’s happening in our lives. One little regret here, one little reward there may not seem like much. But when you start to realize a pattern of regret or a pattern of reward, you can start to see the reason these things recur, which gives you all the power to create more reward and less regret in the future.

3. Be present

Living in the moment is NOT easy. Fears, problems, and heartaches from the past — whether years ago or just days ago — are hard to ignore. Not to mention hopes and expectations for the future… But when you spend all your time in the past and the future, you miss everything that’s happening in the present moment. A daily Tarot reading ritual establishes a time to reconnect with yourself every day, in this exact moment, and identify the things that are affecting you most NOW.

4. Make difficult decisions

When you draw the cards for your Tarot reading, be intentional and tune into your intuition. It is your subconscious that knows which cards to pull, because it knows which messages you need to be hear. Sometimes our conscious minds are so full of trivial matters that we cannot see what we really need to see, making it tough to make any healthy decisions for ourselves. A daily Tarot reading helps you clear out the clutter of your daily life so you see what lies before you with greater clarity.

5. Find peace

Whether you’re experiencing a specific, heartfelt loss or change or you’re just feeling totally crazed out of your mind, a daily Tarot reading helps you not just with a one-time piece of advice, but with regular, recurring help through your process of healing. By meditating on the wisdom you receive from a reading, you’ll not only find clarity in your present situation, but a deeper sense of peace and calm in your daily life. And when the next issue arises — because you know it will! — you’ll be able to face it head-on using your greatest weapon: a healthy, centered mindset.

Three readings a day keeps the stress away

Many people read their horoscope or do a Tarot reading first thing in the morning, to set the tone for the day. But have you ever had a day that started out one way, then took a serious turn? Of course you have … we all have! That’s why not just one, but THREE Tarot readings a day can be so beneficial. You can not only set intentions for your day, but as circumstances arise throughout the day, you can check back in with another reading for more immediate, focused insight.

Your Love Tarot Card of the Day

The Devil


Pulling the Devil card does not mean that bad things are about to happen. What it does mean is that you have stooped to a level of thinking that is all about your ego. You have to look closely at what is driving you to be this way. You are in a wonderful relationship with an individual who adores you. You do not want to ruin the bond that is evolving between the two of you. You need to do some self-reflection in order to figure out what is going on with you under the surface.

Your Erotic Tarot Card of the Day

Strength


Your sex life gains some serious momentum today with the appearance of the Strength card. You have tremendous inner strength when it comes to getting what you want, and that includes sexual conquests.

Earth Sky News for November 29th:  Moon near Uranus

 

Tonight – November 29, 2017 – as the moon travels in front of the constellations of the zodiac, it’ll appear in the general direction of the planet Uranus. Tonight is a good night to locate the constellation Pisces, which is behind the moon and Uranus now. Then you can search for the stars of Pisces again – and maybe find Uranus, too – in a dark country sky during the second and third week of December, after the moon has dropped out of the evening sky.

What will you see of Pisces on this moonlit night? You might at least pick out the Circlet, which is a noticeable asterism within Pisces. (See the sky chart of the constellation Pisces below.)

Most stargazers need binoculars, a moon-free night and a detailed sky chart, like the one here via Sky & Telescope to see Uranus. This world is bigger than Earth, but it’s also 20 times farther from the sun than Earth is from the sun.

If you’re familiar with the Great Square of Pegasus and the Circlet of Pisces, make use of these star patterns to map out the general vicinity of Uranus. Uranus resides in front of the constellation Pisces and near the ecliptic.

This detailed sky chart is your ticket to finding the planet Uranus.

Uranus is the seventh planet outward from the sun. Even on a moonless night, Uranus appears no brighter than the faintest visible stars.

The moon – presently in front of the constellation Pisces – is waxing toward full and will be in front of the constellation Taurus on the night of the full moon.

Bottom line: On the night of November 29, 2017, the moon is located along our line of sight to the faint planet Uranus. But don’t expect to see Uranus in the moon’s glare.

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of November 27th

by Sarah Bartlett.

From The Astrology Room

 

With Mercury’s focused link to Saturn in Sagittarius this week, we begin to think seriously about how to make the best out of our relationships and be more philosophical about how we go about doing just that too.

Time may be a factor, but patience is a virtue in this particular case, as Mercury will go retrograde at the beginning of next week and hold us back a little. Even if it takes another few months before we get what we truly want, the waiting will be worthwhile.

 

ARIES

Communicate your true needs rather than assume your partner or new admirer or just a dating friend, or knows what turns you on. That way, together, you can form an unbreakable bond and forget the mind games. Whoever we are, whatever we think ourselves to be, there’s always a bit of us we don’t really know. This week, fashion your love life so you begin to see the truth.

 

TAURUS

As much as people keep raving about how everything is changing for the better, you aren’t convinced. At the moment, it seems that remaining a pessimist means you can’t get let down. But it’s actually time to engage in a risk-taking, madcap romance which could lead to spectacular times. Not only that, but you’ll also be liberated from all your doubts and fears about long-term love.

 

GEMINI

This week, the planets reveal it’s time to take a deep breath and re-ignite good intention, then act accordingly. If single, do you want to guard your independence but take on a lover, or are you looking for a traditional commitment? Answers come thick and fast as you look around and realise there is someone out there. If attached, you begin to see how to change your relationship for the better.

 

CANCER

As soon as you feel you’re getting involved, there’s a tremendous desire to totally possess the other, or get out as quickly as possible. And this week, you’ll probably notice this reactionary behaviour more acutely than you have for a long time.  Yet at the same time the desire to be in that place of a happy ever after land lures you ever on. Making a choice could be hard, but prevaricating may mean you miss out on passion.

 

LEO

This week, you feel like blurting out the kind of honest, yet tactless truths about what you want and don’t want. For example,  ‘I love you today, but I might not tomorrow, because I can’t guarantee it’s forever’.  Quite frankly, this week is not going to be easy. But with the planets reminding you that love is fragile, opt for the romance of love rather than any wrangling.

 

VIRGO

Express those thoughts or feelings that hurt or niggle you. Either to yourself or to a close friend who won’t judge or disapprove. Accept that the mysterious nature of love is part of you as it is of someone else. As one ancient philosopher said, ‘You yourself are another little world and have within you, the sun, the moon and also the stars.’ Be part of that cosmic truth and let yourself shine with love.

 

LIBRA

Right now, you’re one of those people who may have itchy feet or who is ready to move on.  And you can have what you want if you are prepared to change your outlook on love and what it means to you. The root of successful relating is to first have a good relationship with yourself. In the next few months, someone special will be the catalyst for this major turning point in your life.

 

SCORPIO

You’re in one of those hyper-critical moods. If single, every possible right person, becomes wrong.  And all this cursing about life, people and love, is simply because you hate to be imperfect yourself. You long for a perfect world where all is ideal and good, and you’re at the centre of someone else’s existence. But, the hard truth is this week, other people have themselves to think about.

 

SAGITTARIUS

This week,  learn to respect that your partner or admirer have their own ego to boost too. As someone once said, “at the feast of ego, everyone leaves hungry.” So, this week remember that lovers, new admirers and the world out there, are part of you, as you are part of them. This is the joy of accepting an ancient connection to the world soul, and to your own too.

 

CAPRICORN

You need to know where you stand. For a start, does someone love you and only you, and that when they promise something do they mean it?  Now you’re thinking, can you really demand this? Aren’t you supposed to be accepting, kind, and place no conditions of love? But for once in your life you’re going to be a little selfish and make it clear you have needs. Why not start today?

 

AQUARIUS

Don’t stop to question yourself. This is your chance to romantically leap ahead and do all those crazy things you never believed possible. In fact, many moons ago, you would have been horrified at the thought of doing something which you can now take in your stride.  Forget your fears, cast off self-doubt and remember that thing about the law of attraction? It’s coming your way.

 

PISCES

Destiny is what you make of your life; it’s the melting pot of your choices and who you are, mingled with the encounters you meet on your way. And right now you will be led down paths you hadn’t consciously chosen, but somehow were led without knowing how or why. This week, be led, but don’t become ‘a stray.’ Time to make a conscious choice where fate and free will merge to make love real for you.

 

Your General Weekly Horoscopes for November 27th

By Claire Petulengro

From the Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

The question is not who is going to let you, it is who is going to stop you. You are far stronger than you think and if you can slow your pace and stop worrying about what or who may stand in your way, then you will find the success I know you have been craving throughout 2017. Financial deals on Wednesday bring security to your future. Ring now so we can talk recent mixed feelings in love.

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Try to support your family throughout the rest of this month. It is important you enter December with your close ones knowing you will be there for them. Mercury helps you to finish difficult work projects on Monday and Tuesday in less than half the time expected. Use these days to tackle what has proved impossible. Ring now to hear why I’m glad ‘that’ influence has gone.

 

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

Whatever your mind can conceive and believe, you can achieve. You have allowed others to blur your usually good judgement for too many days now. Stand up for what you believe in and who you want. Groundwork you do on Tuesday and Friday can offer you breakthroughs which you previously could not obtain. Ring now to see how romantic December can be.

 

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

Travel is well starred. You start to realise that life doesn’t have to be all hard work. By focusing on having some ‘me’ time you start to look and feel like a more relaxed version of you. Your element of water helps you get to the bottom of what is really troubling an older family member. Ring now to hear how Mars hands you the power of negotiation in business.

 

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

Are you saying what others want to hear just for a quiet life. Because if you are Leo, you will only be making life harder for yourself in the long run. Being up front about what you expect from the rest of this year can make your life a more enjoyable and fulfilling place to be. Energy levels return on Thursday thanks to the magic of Mars. Ring now to hear where your time is best spent.

 

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

Stop chasing the money and start chasing the passion Virgo. It is then that you will find your true riches. Children bring good news and are forecast to be the source of much joy. Careful how much information you give about others’ lives. It would be far better to let others divulge their own news Virgo. Ring now to hear how forced home changes will turn out to be a blessing in disguise.

 

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

I can see that time to yourself is really important to you lately. Getting it is not as easy as it seems though, is it my friend? Mixed messages Mars brought has meant there has been a messy feeling to your life recently. Your chance to clean things up both personally and professionally comes this week. Take steps to be honest about who your priority is. Ring now so I can give you a confidence boost.

 

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly. You have been living life by the standards others set and it’s time to work out what you think is and isn’t acceptable. That low feeling is replaced by one of optimism, as you finally realise you don’t have to spend time with those who bring you down. Ring now to hear how upcoming travel plans can end this year on a high for you.

 

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

Keep your eyes on the stars, but remember to keep your feet on the ground. You start to see, as you enter December, that you have been living life by the standards of others, when you can and should have been living life by your own. Know how far is too far to go when pushing for deals in work. Pride pays a part in you proving you are worth investing in. Ring now for a message from Jupiter.

 

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

An opportunity you thought had passed you by is given a second wind by someone you didn’t know wanted to help you. Your humble attitude in recent days has earnt you many admirers and supporters. Don’t say no just because you’re being shown charity. Others would not invest in you if they did not think you were worth it. Ring now to hear why being on time means everything this week.

 

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

Saturn, your ruling planet helps you to realise what you want from the rest of this year. This may mean letting down those who said they were relying on you. By the time you enter December, however, you will realise that this more honest approach is actually for everyone’s benefit. News of a split changes the dynamics in a major way. Ring now so we can make your future great.

 

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

Try not to let jealousy blur your good judgement. It would be far better for you to wait and let others prove, over the coming days, what they will or won’t do for you Pisces. Hard work you do this week can help you finally get back on track with those you fell out with in October. The written word can make you money, so pay attention to detail. Ring now for clear vision.

 

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, November 27th

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

The Moon spends the full day in your quiet solar twelfth house, Aries, and this points to a continued need for some time to recharge your batteries, so to speak, on an emotional level. This can be a day when you’re more retiring than usual, and it’s right for you. You’re also in a beautiful position to do detail work or fill in the details of a plan. Your eye for design is excellent right now. Your mindset is increasingly practical as the day advances, and patience is easy to muster up if it means focusing on priorities. There can be a sense that you need to give up something pleasurable in order to gain in another area of life, and decisions can be difficult as a result, but they also tend to be good for you in the long run. Advice now tends to be helpful and mature. There may be a reality to face about a far-out fantasy and your feet return to the ground, which can be a bit disappointing. The good news is that you are likely to have better information to move your plans forward in practical ways. While a hole in your thinking or education may become obvious now, it does give you the chance to fill it in.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

The Moon spends the day in your social sector, boosting your desire to connect with others and enjoy some networking, Taurus. Decisions or serious conversations about financial or relationship matters may be necessary as Mercury and Saturn move towards an alignment, however. It’s a good time for thinking about ways to cut back on excesses or to be more mindful of responsibilities. A partner may be strict with you, or you may feel temporarily unsupported, but it can lead to a stronger grip on what’s realistic and where you stand. While there could be some realities to face today, this is the start of fresh new thinking or a new direction on a mental level. Ultimately, you gain more confidence in your newly strengthened plans. This is particularly the case with business affairs and also your feelings about a person or relationship. With Saturn approaching the end of its transit of your solar eighth house, any work you’ve put towards reducing debt or strengthening a relationship has its payoffs.

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

The Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart today, Gemini, and things get a little more serious than usual as you are made aware of your responsibilities. As well, your ruler, Mercury moves into alignment with stern Saturn in your partnership sector, and serious thoughts or conversations about relationships are likely to figure strongly. There may be decisions made about a relationship or where you’re headed on the relationship front. The practical side of your connections is in focus, and you may be making joint plans, decisions, and commitments. You may be feeling a little somber now, but you are also more equipped to take care of practical details. Sometimes others’ criticisms or indifference can motivate you to make improvements. Alternatively, there can be a smart agreement reached today, or you see eye to eye with a partner on an important issue.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

The Moon spends the day in your adventure sector, dear Cancer, and this keeps your spirits high, even with a somewhat somber tone to the day due to Mercury’s alignment with Saturn. Indeed, this can be a time to sober up on a particular area of your life so that you see things a little more clearly, but do be aware that you may first swing to an overly negative viewpoint before seeing things in a balanced way. For the most part, decisions made now tend to be considered and sensible when related to work, health, and habits. Certain realities faced now can lead to a freeing feeling of acceptance of things precisely as they are. Even if you wrestle with some criticisms now, they’re likely to be of the constructive variety, and even if they aren’t, you have the power to turn them to your benefit. Resolve to take better care of yourself. Conversations can be serious or businesslike, but constructive.

Leo

Leo
Leo

More serious thoughts tend to figure strongly today, dear Leo, or conversations tend to take the serious route. You can be unusually contemplative now. You may undoubtedly hear more criticisms swirling around you now, but you can make these constructive even if they’re not intended that way. In fact, today is excellent for seeing flaws and working on fixes. For some of you, love relationships are a little weightier than usual. If you’re inclined to voice your frustrations today, take a little extra care that you don’t do this in a negative way that turns others off from helping or supporting you. If you’ve been mulling over a decision recently, this can be a time for coming to a conclusion. It can feel wonderful to commit to a person or project or to make a meaningful resolution. Perhaps the best use of the Mercury-Saturn energy today, however, is to think up practical ways to improve your leisure time, relationships, and enjoyment of life.

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

The Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, dear Virgo, and you’re in the mood for some company. You’re also in the position to gain a different perspective on your life. A Mercury-Saturn alignment casts a somewhat somber tone to the day, whether it’s because of a desire to make solid plans about a practical matter or due to news or conversations that broach more serious topics. You may feel the need to act with authority today or to be strict and firm. Decisions related to family or the home may be approached now. Fortunately, you are in the position to assess issues realistically and with much practicality. Honing in on your priorities may not be a lot of fun, but it’s helpful now. There can be criticisms to deal with, but as a result, you may decide to strengthen uncertain areas, and this boosts your confidence going forward.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

The Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, dear Libra, and this gets you in a productive frame of mind — an ideal climate for the Mercury-Saturn alignment occurring today that encourages you to get serious. There is good energy with you for firming up a project or clinching a deal. You’re in great shape if you have important work or plans to attend to that require particular focus and concentration. Conversations tend to be serious and others may be a little heavy-handed, however. Complaints and criticism are more likely than usual when Mercury and Saturn come together. Sacrifices may need to be made in order to realize growth, but they may very well be worth it. Although the day requires more discipline and a realistic outlook than usual, if there are ways to be both firm and kind to yourself and others at the same time, you, as a Libra, will find them!

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

With Mercury and Saturn moving into alignment in your sector of self-worth and resources, dear Scorpio, you can benefit from taking a critical look at your finances, income, or attitude towards earning. Circumstances may be such that you need to get serious about — or have a good think about — money or business issues. The good news is that you are seeing things for what they are, rather than what you would like them to be, and this realism helps you to tackle problems with maturity. Be realistic, but not pessimistic. Avoid negative thinking, but do be honest with yourself. You need to tend to your own interests first right now. If there are criticisms, which is frequently the case when Mercury and Saturn get together, turn them into a positive by strengthening your position.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

The Moon spends the day at the bottom of your solar chart, Sagittarius, and there is a strong tendency to keep to yourself or to stick with what you know. This works exceptionally well with a Mercury-Saturn alignment occurring in your sign, which is a somewhat cautious and practical influence. It would be wise to take a closer look at personal plans to see where you might make some improvements. Your mind is a little more critical than usual, and you can use this to your benefit. You may present yourself with an air of authority or with seriousness today, but this may mask your true feelings, so do watch for misunderstandings. As well, be careful not to criticize or come across as harsher than you intend.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

The Moon spends the day in your communications zone, dear Capricorn, and this influence encourages you to stay or get in touch. With the planet of communication, Mercury, in alignment with your ruler, Saturn, information becomes an even stronger focus now. Decisions about long-standing problems and the past may need to be made now, and you can have a strong urge to settle issues that have been left unresolved. Words have increased impact now, so choose them carefully. It may be better to keep silent about some issues now, as there can be a tendency for others to see things in absolute terms and compassion and understanding can be missing just for the time being. However, this can also help you to make practical choices. Avoid over-thinking things, but do aim for self-honesty.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

The Moon spends the day in your resources sector, dear Aquarius, and you’re inclined to put emotions to the side so that you can take care of your practical affairs more effectively. Helping you along is a Mercury-Saturn alignment, encouraging you to adopt solid, concrete, and realistic plans for the future. There can be useful advice coming from a friend or your networks, or discussions with friends can turn to business or can become business-like. Agreements (very practical ones!) may be reached. This planetary alignment in your sector of friends, hopes, and dreams prompts giving all or some of these matters further thought and specialized attention.

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

The Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Pisces, highlighting your emotional needs and wants. Even so, a Mercury-Saturn alignment at the top of your solar chart keeps you on your professional toes. It makes sense to be more aware than usual of what you’re communicating today, as your words have more impact than usual and can stick around for much longer than usual, as well! People may be taking things at face value rather than seeking out the fine or subtle points, which is not up your alley, but necessary to note. Career projects may be subject to scrutiny, and flaws may be revealed now that need fixing. There can be criticism to deal with, but this can motivate you to work on fixes, if only to protect yourself from further scrutiny. Ultimately, all of this works in your favor. It’s true that a day influenced by Mercury-Saturn can involve hearing more complaints than usual, but it’s also a good time for firming things up and getting back on track.

 

If You Were Born Today, November 27th

 

Although you march to the beat of a different drummer, you are also a very sensitive and emotional person. Highly original, your creativity and ability to think outside the box earns you respect from others. However, your emotions sometimes get the best of you. Impulsiveness and a tendency to borrow from your future can get you into trouble as well. You are friendly and warm, but you can also be quite difficult to read, as your nature is rather contradictory. On the one hand, you are sensitive and have your eye on security. On the other, you have an undeniable adventurous and independent streak. Famous people born today: Bruce Lee, Robin Givens, Jimi Hendrix, Alexander Haig, Jaleel White.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

Your birthday occurs around a First Quarter Moon this year, and you are reaching an important turning point in terms of personal growth. You may be more emotional this year, and should watch for unnecessary conflicts and making hasty decisions as a result. Otherwise, this is a year of great energy, motivation, and growth. You are more ambitious and desirous of action in the year ahead. This should be a busy, dynamic period in your life.

Something big is in the works regarding your love or social life. You’ll have a chance to heal old wounds with regards to love and friendship this year. You’re also bound to find new ways of making money. Relationships are mutually beneficial and naturally equal, fair, and balanced during this period of your life. There can be a stronger inclination towards togetherness and sharing.

Your ability to concentrate and focus is enhanced this year. You may, in fact, have a lot of work to do in relative solitude or you might often retreat to study, work, or think. You might be required to travel for business purposes. Thinking in realistic and practical terms is your best bet, and the need for tangible results for your efforts is strong.

You may be actively involved in teamwork and collaboration with others this year. Passions are stirred and you’re in a good position for connecting with others to accomplish your goals. There can be the beginning of a significant new relationship or the intensification of an existing romance.

However, this can be a year when bursts of restlessness, rebellion, and impatience figure prominently. You have a tendency to take risks and to act on sudden impulses without considering consequences. You assert your will and individuality powerfully, and you are ready to fight for freedom. There may be changes in work schedules, or life’s circumstances could challenge you in such a way that you need to change your goals or actions. This can also be a time when you tend to resist others and challenge them if they are trying to hold you back. Arguments and confrontations are likely. Technology may be a source of irritation, and electrical appliances may break down or not work up to par.

Energy fluctuates this year. Anger can erupt seemingly from nowhere and it gives you the chance to deal with it. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, this can be an excellent year in which to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.

Developing existing businesses is highly favored this year. Long-term alliances can be made. This is a potentially excellent year for making prosperous connections.

This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.

This can be a good time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease. Wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year.

Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely this year, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results. The year is good for enjoying wonderful social or love opportunities. Your faith increases and you seek out more meaning from your life. You’re in good shape for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities as well. Useful contacts can be made during this period. Your love or social life grows and satisfies.

2017 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It’s likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.

2018 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to pay special attention to practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, development, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, November 27th

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

You tend to keep to yourself in the first half of the day, dear Aries. This is an excellent time for letting go of frustrations and tension, especially with a Mars-Neptune connection helping you wind down. It’s an imaginative time, as well. Retreating a little from mainstream activities so that you can regroup on an emotional level makes sense now if you can manage it. The Moon moves into your sign just before noon, and emotions surface, feeling urgent. These desires will pass, often as quickly as they came on in the first place, but pay attention to which ones remain. You’re bound to feel more get up and go now. You may not know where you’re headed just yet, but there is good energy for exploration and discovery. No longer content to take the back seat, you are ready to take action. People are valuing the very qualities that come naturally to you today, and this can subtly boost your popularity.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

You might enjoy others’ company more than usual in the first half of the day, dear Taurus. Casual communicating works well now. You want to share thoughts with others rather than feel the burden of all the decision making. Doing favors for people in your life may be a good way to express yourself at the moment, particularly with a Mars-Neptune parallel that encourages contributing, helping, and generosity. Shortly before noon, the Moon moves into your solar twelfth house for a couple of days, making it a good time for reflecting on your personal life, particularly with your future in mind. This is a signal from the cosmos to take things easy, or easier than you have been recently, in preparation for a new cycle that will begin with the Moon enters your sign on Thursday afternoon. You are attracted to activities that help you relax and take a load off. It’s an excellent time for regrouping and refreshing, but not the best for getting noticed.

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

In the first half of the day, Gemini, you’re more aware than usual of your responsibilities and performance. As such, the sooner you meet your obligations, the more emotionally satisfied and calm you’ll feel. You may be moved to take charge or situations put you in the position of leader. Just before midday, the Moon moves into your social sector, and the need for non-competitive outlets for self-expression emerges. In fact, the less expected of you, the more naturally you contribute, share, and connect with others. You’re likely to find the remainder of the day gently stimulating. While you crave action, you’re also seeking creative and imaginative outlets. You enjoy the feedback you receive from others, which tends to jumpstart your own thinking processes. You are likely to want to keep busy and connected today — a welcome break after a day of taking things quite seriously.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

The first half of the day favors spontaneous expression, dear Cancer, although it can take a bit of time to loosen up after a Mercury-Saturn alignment. Honesty is charming and winning now. Ultimately, it frees you from unnecessary guilt. Look to others or different schools of thought for a different, fresh perspective on your life. By midday, the Moon will have moved into your career and reputation sector, and others’ expectations tend to pull you in a particular direction. You may be more aware of the rules, and you tend to want to put in the necessary effort to make life a little more orderly. You’re experiencing more “get up and go” related to business, finances, or career. You’re likely to feel proud of your performance now, or you’re motivated to do your best.

Leo

Leo
Leo

With the Moon in your solar eighth house, thinking, journaling, or ruminating can get you into better touch with your inner needs, wants, and motivations, dear Leo. Until midday, you’re likely to gravitate towards quiet, healing activities, after which you’ll want to pull yourself up and out. As the Moon moves into fellow Fire sign, Aries, you feel the need to feed your spirit, and a Mars-Neptune parallel can help nudge you towards activities that do so. Larger issues come into play, and you are prompted to think about your bigger goals and plans. Doors can open in your life for personal growth opportunities, and a broad mind is a prerequisite. This is a good time for finding inspiration through something you read or experience.

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

There may have been some heavy thinking or serious food for thought, dear Virgo, and now you’re ready to relax a little and get perspective. A partnership or friendship deserves some special attention in the first half of the day, especially. This is a strong day for bonding with someone, especially if you are tuning into nonverbal cues. In the second half of the day, the Moon is now moving through your solar eighth house, and you seek out a real connection with someone or a project. You’re drawn to activities that absorb you. This two-day transit is beneficial, as you can learn a lot about yourself and others through observation. Today, you might have a significant memory or personal revelation that motivates you.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

You continue to focus on the details of your life and getting things into order in the first half of the day, dear Libra, and this leads to a stronger sense of purposefulness. Just before midday, the Moon moves into your partnership sector, and this tends to bring you into a more sociable mood, or one in which you’d prefer to share your ideas or activities with someone. As well, a Mars-Neptune parallel points to a greater need to be supportive and helpful. This is a time in which establishing balance in your life is a stronger focus. There are times to go solo, and there are times to be with others, and today’s energies favor the latter. Others may challenge you, but they also make you a little stronger. Teamwork is especially favored in the second half of the day.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

The Moon continues to transit your creative and romantic sector in the first half of today, dear Scorpio, and you’re likely in the mood for some special attention or recognition for your more unique qualities. This is not the time for blending in. You are displaying more confidence, vitality, and optimism. Just before noon, the Moon moves into your work and health sector, and you become more sensitive to details that may be out of whack. A focus on daily routines or details can be comforting. Taking care of business or chores can sometimes help take the pressure off overthinking other areas of your life, and that’s likely the case today. You tend to go out of your way to support or help others.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

There is some caution or introspection to the first half of the day, Sagittarius, and you’re inclined to set priorities and enjoy simple activities. You don’t feel any pressure to push or reach beyond boundaries, and this is useful to you now. You’ll crave more emotional involvement with the rest of the world in the second half of the day, however. The Moon moves into your creativity sector, and tensions might be released through creative, entertaining activities. Pulling yourself away from problems or a tendency to overthink can sometimes give you a better perspective. You can feel especially inspired by family and friends now.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

The Moon in your communications sector this morning stimulates a desire to communicate, connect, and collect information, dear Capricorn. Stay flexible and be spontaneous if you feel right about something in your gut. There can be a nice feeling of camaraderie with a partner or friend. In fact, today is excellent for supporting and helping others. With the Moon moving into your home and family sector towards midday, find familiar, comforting activities that help build confidence from the ground up. Focus on tending to your domestic or personal needs. This Moon position can encourage you to back away from problems coming from the outside world so that you can see them from a better perspective. Today and the next couple of days are good for feeling rooted and secure, but you won’t necessarily be content unless you accomplish something productive, so aim to meditate in motion now.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

You are more inclined to stick with the familiar than to venture out looking for new experiences early today, dear Aquarius. Even so, you could be feeling close to someone who seems to be sharing the same values as you or who looks to you with particular respect. You benefit from a pleasing sense of clarity or a hook on reality that boosts your feelings that what you’ve been recently doing has been worthwhile. Just before noon, you enter a more curious lunar period, and it’s now time for branching out and entertaining new possibilities. Reaching out to others can be rewarding. You are coming across as articulate and intelligent, and others respond positively. You’re radiating good, calm energy now.

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

The Moon in your sign until shortly before noon tends to magnify your emotions, sometimes at the cost of reason, dear Pisces. However, this is an important time for getting in touch with your emotional wants and needs, keeping in mind that they may seem a bit larger than life for now. In the second half of the day, your emotional requirements don’t appear as urgent. It’s a good time for reminding yourself of what you already have in your life, and for finding ways to appreciate these things. You begin to fill up with more patience. You’re inclined to play it safe on an emotional level, and this is an essential exercise as you work on making your life more comfortable and secure. Life no longer feels like a pressure cooker, and a Mars-Neptune connection today helps you wind down, as well. You benefit from reasonable pacing now.

 

 

Read Your 2018 Horoscope

On the edge of greatness

By Maria DeSimone

From Tarot.com

 

Without a doubt, 2018 will be a year to get down to business. A series of planetary switch-ups allows for notable support in practical matters. You’ll build foundations in your life by trusting your instincts. You’ll also seek out an innovative approach to your finances — all with great potential for success.

Back on October 10 of 2017, Jupiter, the planet of possibilities, began swimming in the emotional depths of Scorpio, and remains in this sign until November 8, 2018. With Jupiter moving swiftly through Scorpio as the year begins, you’re already feeling quite comfortable with profound, intimate, emotional exchanges in your relationships. You’ll continue to feel blessed when you explore hidden terrain, since you’ll likely find buried treasure that will help you grow spiritually, psychologically, and physically.

Your personal powers are strong

2018 will be a year of heightened intuition, so if you’ve wanted to cultivate your psychic gift, the universe is offering to be your mentor. Pay close attention to May 25 and August 19 when Jupiter will be at a perfect trine to Neptune. Faith, intuition, and luck are your perfect trifecta around these dates.

Jupiter and Pluto will also work together well this year — a stark contrast to the power struggle they engaged in during 2017. On January 15, April 14, and September 12, these planets will help you remember that you had the power within you all along. More importantly, this planetary connection will encourage you to use it in a way that strengthens you and those in your circle. Business and financial ventures will be favored.

On November 8 Jupiter enters Sagittarius, the sign Jupiter naturally rules. This will be an auspicious time when you notice greater success and support in any endeavor that opens your mind. It’ll be time to explore new horizons!

Building foundations for the future

While Jupiter encourages us to grow through expansive opportunities, Saturn, his counterpart, demands that we grow through patience, discipline, and hard work. On December 19, 2017, Saturn moved into Capricorn, the sign he naturally rules. Until 2020 we’ll have dominating lessons about building solid foundations that will serve and protect us through any storm. As the New Year begins, we’re still getting used to the subtle but profound difference Saturn makes when he moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.

Consequently, in 2018 you’ll know that it’s time to approach your life and responsibilities with a plan. Fortunately, you probably feel ready, willing, and able to do so. As long as you come to the cosmic workplace on time each morning ready to do the work necessary, Saturn in Capricorn will help you build a structure in a certain area of your life that you’ll be able to rely on for the long haul.

Revolutions and revelations

Later this year, expect a material revolution to begin. From May 15 to November 6, Uranus, the planet of innovation and sudden change, will give us a hint of what he can do when in the practical, financially-oriented sign of Taurus. Expect a shift in the financial market — especially anything that has to do with technology and science. On a personal level, how you maintain physical and material security is likely to change. You can choose to reinvent yourself in these areas or you can resist. If you fight it, though, you’ll only feel more rattled and ultimately left behind when the rest of the world moves into more progressive terrain. Lastly, Mars and Venus will both retrograde in 2018, making certain times tricky to successfully negotiate new business ventures and romantic endeavors. Avoid launching anything new from both June 26 – August 27 while Mars is retrograde, and October 5 – November 16 when Venus retrograde.

Remember, success in life is most supported when we swim with — and not against — the tides. Why create unnecessary strain? Don’t work in contradiction with planetary cycles. Instead, let them work for you.

2018 Love Horoscope

The deepest level of love

By Maria DeSimone

From Tarot.com

 

Expansive opportunities to forge genuine relationships were available to all back in 2017, thanks to Jupiter moving through the partnership-oriented sign of Libra. As 2018 begins, there will be an extraordinary occasion to create remarkable depth and intimacy in any romantic connection you might have made. Jupiter will move through Scorpio until November 8, 2018, supporting the desire to delve into everything that terrifies and excites you about intimacy.

With Venus turning retrograde in Scorpio from October 5-31, and then retrograde in Libra until November 16, you’ll also have an opportunity to practice facing the skeletons in your love life … or the debris that keeps you from enjoying genuine love and commitment with someone. Lessons connected to learning how to share resources with your lover, both emotional and physical, are strong this year. You also have the chance to overcome trust issues, fear of betrayal, and any sexual hang-ups that are blocking your ability to enjoy making love.

Two eclipses in playful, romantic Leo round out the year’s possibilities for pleasure in matters of the heart. A Lunar Eclipse on January 31 and a Solar Eclipse on August 11 can bring you an affair to remember … or the love of a lifetime.

2018 Numerology Predictions

Personal choice in the age of information chaos


 

We have witnessed a widening schism in politics, social upheaval, and the economy for some time — it was the dominant factor in the 9-year cycle from 2008 until 2017. However, the following 9-year cycle from 2017 through 2025 doesn’t slow this polarization one bit: instead, it will be dominated by what could be called the “information chaos…”

A surge of misinformation

Two hundred years ago, information came to a person sparingly, a bit of gossip one day, a note sent by a pigeon, perhaps a two-page newspaper once a month. Today, data comes at us like hail in a thunderstorm. We are relentlessly bombarded with information through our devices, written material, television, computers, social media… and to make matters worse, much of it is false. This complicates our ability to accurately comprehend what is happening around us. When facts are not clearly discernable, doubt becomes the only consistency. How do you make choices when you can’t trust the information you receive?

The choices you make today will create the world you live in tomorrow. This has always been the case. The challenge today is that things are moving at a dramatically increased speed, and often in the dark, as waves of distorted data make it difficult to see clearly. And with life moving this fast, crashes are exponentially more damaging. To put it in a nutshell: At a time when personal choices carry heavier consequences than ever, our ability to separate good information from bad has been severely hampered.

Brace for change

Changes tend to have a perceptible footprint — there is a buildup, then the event, followed by a period of stabilization. Sometimes a change seems to happen so quickly or dramatically it feels sudden and unexpected. While such changes may appear to come out of nowhere, they have a backstory; we just weren’t watching. In 2018 we’ll see quite a few of those, following each other so rapidly it will be difficult to keep track. To help you prepare, let’s take a look at the numbers of 2018 to see how they will affect the global community, as well as your personal cycles.

The numbers of 2018

2018 is a 2 Universal Year, reducing from the number 11 (because 2+0+1+8=11, and then 1+1=2). With the sensitive, finely-tuned, emotionally-conscious 11 behind this peace-loving 2, you can count on an emotionally-charged year that touches our hearts more than previous years — even more than 2017, which is saying something.

Passion dominates in 2018, which is good when driven by positive forces, but not so great when negative powers are at play. Most importantly, no one gets to sit on the sideline without being affected by these changing times. With a 4 at the top of the Numerology chart for 2018, and a 5 at the bottom of the chart, chaos rules. We are riding a speeding train on a rickety track. Just about anything you can imagine could happen, and probably will.

The voices of greed, selfishness, fear, and separation will get louder and louder this year. But we will also see a surge in our desire to learn, to advance, to overcome, to grow, connect, and rectify. A growing force floats unseen under the surface in search of common ground, of healing and sharing spreading in unlikely places.

2018 continues a long spiral of grueling extremes, further dividing us into those led by the heart and those led by the mind. This struggle will be felt in our individual lives, as well as nationally and globally.

A year of opposites

No part of the planet will escape the turbulent effect of a year driven by passion and confusion. But, where some parts of the world will see great upheaval, others will see improvement and progress. It will be a year of opposites, with waves of goodwill, promise, peace, and prosperity, as well as rapid downfalls, disasters, storms of human-created misery, war, and famine.

Uprisings across the globe will become more frequent, as social media exposes the differences between political systems, and people recognize the power in numbers. Oppressed groups will push harder for change, equality, and basic human rights. In an age where nothing stays hidden for long, it will become clear who is responsible, and where to push.

As a result, we will almost certainly see several high-profile, powerful leaders or parties tumble, in turn causing major changes in their countries, especially those known for oppression and religious intolerance. Unrest in the Middle East grows and spreads to countries currently relatively quiet.

In the US, turmoil becomes a daily part of life, bringing more frequent protests and clashes. As a result, the US political status quo is likely to be dramatically altered by the time 2018 has ended.

Natural disasters will continue, some caused by climate change (storms and wildfires), but more often by the instability of the Earth itself (volcanic eruptions, earthquakes), and often in areas long considered stable.

Our financial markets experience a major shake-up, but here too, parts of the planet appear almost immune to the troubles caused elsewhere.

Find clarity in simplicity

The chaos and turmoil we experience on the surface is essentially a reflection of a deeper, somewhat hidden struggle.

Over the past few hundred years, our daily lives have become more complex (compared to a few hundred thousand years before that), especially since the birth of the digital age. There is a contradiction in that. As life on the surface becomes increasingly hectic and chaotic, we are drawn (or forced) to seek answers within, for ourselves and our global community. Obviously, this has always been true. What’s different is the grey areas are disappearing. The intense polarization we see happening around us reflects the polarization happening within us, between the heart and the mind.

For example, when you are faced with a refugee family, or someone in great need, your heart will be drawn to let them in, to feed them, to help. Your mind, however, will tell you that there is no room, they are unlike you, it’s not your problem, someone else will help… The heart is subtle, quiet, open — the mind is loud, and quick to react and judge. Knowing which is which can make or break you in 2018.

Our lives are governed by two rulers: Feelings (the realm of the heart) and logic (the mind). Every decision, every action — whether made by an individual, a nation, religion, or political party — is based solely on these two driving forces. There is no third influence, no alternative. Something is either dominated by the heart, the mind, or a combination of the two. Both are necessary.

Here’s the clincher: One without the other causes disharmony. Period. The more disproportionate, the greater the disharmony.

Make the right choice

Today’s toxic and chaotic environment makes it harder to choose, yet easier to know. If it is loud, obnoxious, hurtful to others (anyone, anywhere), or is motivated by fear, greed, distrust, or anger, it is the mind, without the heart, and it is wrong. Always. Without exception.

If it is gentle, warm, loving, helps or heals others (anyone, anywhere), or is motivated by generosity, courage, or empathy, you can be certain it comes from the heart, and it is right.

It’s really all about you

Make no mistake; all this chaos is here for you. The underlying, hidden force causing the shake-up is trying to reach you, to help you choose, or perhaps to force you to choose. But the information chaos will bring doubt and confusion to your mind, so where will you turn to make your choices? What’s left that you can trust?

Here’s a helpful hint. If you are listening to sounds and images playing between your ears, it’s your mind, and you can be sure some of the information stored there is inaccurate. So be careful, because the mind can be an ugly beast.

If you are feeling something near the heart area, if it affects you emotionally, if it reminds you of love and empathy, if it makes you feel powerful and helpless at the same time, if the only confusion you experience is that it seems both sad and beautiful, if you feel a need to share it and treasure it, then you should probably also act on it. Because when your heart speaks, it speaks the truth.

This coming year the numbers 11 and 2 rule. You can be sure the events and the turmoil will touch you deeply — as a witness and perhaps a participant — in a cosmic play of “Can you Tell the Difference?” Play to win this year, and know the difference — the quality of your life depends on it.

2018 month by month

In a year that already has a barrage of information (both false and factual) as its most significant influence, January and October peak in this regard. Long hidden facts come to the surface, secrets are revealed, and high-ranking people are exposed during these months.

February, May, June, and November are particularly vulnerable to natural disasters, as well as upheaval in the financial markets.

April has its focus on everything about labor — expect strikes or other labor-related unrest.

March and December are centered around the abuse of freedom, nationally and internationally, as well as breakthroughs in bringing freedom to places where there was little previously. There will be rapid changes and much unrest.

September and November bring emotions and passion to the surface, causing considerable upheaval globally.

The Good and Bad of Dating Your Same Sign

Explore the ins and outs of inner-sign dating


Aries (March 21 – April 19)

This can be a tough match. You’re both hot-headed, want your way, and tend to blame the other person when things go wrong. On the other hand, you spark each other’s passionate nature, and will have lots of active fun together. Fighting fairly is the key to your success … as there will be fights! “Never go to bed angry” should be your mantra.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

The Bull is stubborn, with a one-track mind. If you’re on the same track, great! If not, you’ll both need to expand your comfort zones — not an easy task for either one of you. You’re both passionate about your own ideas and opinions, so if one of you is conservative and the other liberal, you’re in for trouble. Sports and sensual enjoyment can keep you together.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Twins never bore each other. In fact, there may be too much unpredictability in this match. One of you will have to become the “stable one” and cultivate a home life, or you may not stay together long enough or go deep enough emotionally to put down roots. At least you can talk through whatever comes up, and enjoy a diverse social life.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

This is one of the best same-sign matches. You’re both nurturing and love to snuggle up at home. So what if you don’t go out much? The biggest drawback, once you learn to tolerate each other’s moods (and not take them personally!), is that your tendency to mother each other can smother the sexual spark. You make great parents, though.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

This is a volatile match! You both need a lot of attention, and tend to pout if you don’t get it — so you’ll need to trade off making the other person feel special. Passions run high, which is great for sex, but take care you don’t say or do something in the heat of a fight that fatally damages the relationship. Mutual respect is the key to this union.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

If you’re both dedicated to the higher goals of health and service, this could be a match made in heaven. Just don’t try to improve the other person or criticize their behavior — which kills the passion. Overanalyzing the relationship can also make it wither on the vine. Plant a garden or do yoga together and you’ll bring out the best in each other.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

This can be a lovely union — you’re both attuned to pleasing the other person and cultivating balance and fairness. The danger, though, is that you’ll stay too superficial — projecting a beautiful image of love while resentments seethe below the surface. You’ll have to be willing to rock the boat a bit so this match can come into its full potential.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Passion, danger, intrigue … two Scorpios have it all! Maybe too much so. Trust is the crucial ingredient that makes this match work. If one or both partners are suspicious or jealous, you’re in for a rocky ride. It’s essential to share your deepest feelings in this union, but don’t bonk the other person over the head with them, or you’ll spur resentment.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Here’s a fun match! You’ll be kayaking and motorcycling together to your hearts’ content. Your strong opinions can lead to spirited discussions, but you’re both okay with that. Real trouble looms when one of you wants a commitment and the other prefers to stay footloose. A higher spiritual purpose can keep you together.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

You might not think this would be a great romantic match, since both of you are hard-headed realists. Yet that very practical nature lets you appreciate who the other person really is, devoid of illusions. You can be yourself in this relationship. Just don’t let your worldly ambitions or need for status take precedence over a nurturing home life.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Aquarians are very open-minded, and can tolerate (or even enjoy!) each other’s eccentricities. And, you make the best of friends. However, the emotional realm is not your forte — so you both may shy away from declaring your feelings and taking things into deeper waters. To cultivate passion, you’ll have to venture out of your comfort zone.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

You’re both dreamers — which works both for you and against you. Two Fish can float around endlessly in a lovely fantasy, never casting anchor into a secure reality. You tend to wear rose-colored glasses, and that means your sweetheart can do no wrong — which is great, unless that person has serious problems. Get a third party to handle your finances.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, November 25th

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

With Mercury in your adventure sector these days, dear Aries, you’re more often than not letting your mind wander and wonder. Today, the right energy is available for detaching yourself just enough to enjoy a detox of sorts on a mental level – a mental detour can be most welcome now! A helpful conversation, invitation, or piece of news may be part of the picture. You’re in a great position to come up with exciting ideas now. You’re also communicating with added panache. Today is active for thinking outside the box regarding education, communications, travel, projects revolving around technology and new-thought topics, as well as for work and health matters. Branching out on a mental level can help you feel free and optimistic.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

This is an excellent time for exploring the depths of a topic or subject, dear Taurus, or for absorbing yourself in new thinking about an old problem. Inspiring conversations can happen in intimate settings. Something that is communicated or news coming in today can help you let go of a past matter and move forward in a positive direction. You feel detached just enough that you’re bringing more objectivity to a usually tricky or emotional topic, and you can break new ground as a result. You might even have the opportunity to rid yourself of a nagging problem or a secret. There is the ability to see right down to the core of a situation. It’s a great time to observe others and look for possible reasons for their behavior. The same type of analysis can be quite successful applied to yourself!

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

There can be a wonderful a meeting of the minds today, Gemini, or you might have a thinking or talking breakthrough with a partner or about a relationship. Open conversations or better communication may be just the ticket to move forward. Ideas that come to you now probably have quite a bit of merit. The freer you feel, the more likely you’ll welcome positive new energy into your life, so use the open spirit of the Mercury-Uranus energy today and find ways to let go of burdening attitudes or situations. Networking can lead to useful or pleasant discoveries. Aim to make changes on the fly rather than stick entirely to a schedule today.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

With Mercury in your work and health sector harmonizing with Uranus at the top of your solar chart, dear Cancer, you’re bringing fresh ideas to your work and your daily life. You’re seeing a way forward and have your eye on making improvements. You are primarily interested in making progress now, and if you can find ways to keep things fresh and non-routine, you’ll enjoy a greater feeling of freedom and optimism. Open your mind to new ideas and methods for best results today. There can be exciting information that fuels your optimism about health matters, or that inspires you to brush up your skills. The work or effort you’re putting in today engages your emotions.

Leo

Leo
Leo

This can be a strong day for advancing a project or coming up with progressive new ideas about your next step, dear Leo. You are anxious to move something forward, and you’re entertaining ideas or new methods for doing so. Creative projects or romantic relationships may receive a nice boost. There is progressive energy with you today that inspires you to look forward with more confidence. It can be a great time to show others that you care through granting them more freedom or offering your time to listen to them, brainstorm with them, or help guide them.

 

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

Today’s energies are fabulous for putting your worries behind you and focusing on what’s ahead of you, dear Virgo. You are feeling just enough emotional detachment to enjoy yourself without self-consciousness. There can be inventive solutions to home-related matters for some of you, or real conversations about making improvements, particularly with family, loved ones, or an intimate partner. You can enjoy sharing creative ideas and memories with people close to you, and there can be a focus on opening up the lines of communication, and even education, in the home environment. This may also be a time for exciting personal revelations that also have the effect of moving you forward or detaching you from staid situations.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

This is a good day for finding inventive ways to advance your personal interests and projects, dear Libra, or for enjoying others’ perspectives and putting them to good use. In fact, you can benefit from brainstorming tremendously right now. Unusual ideas or different perspectives lead to fabulous plans. Socializing and conversing is a breeze today. You are in the mood for something different or unique, finding it challenging doing the same old routine, and you may be pushing boundaries a little in your conversations as a result, perhaps to stir the pot and keep things exciting. This can have impressive effects. Petty problems may be seen as tiny hiccups in a much bigger plan.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

The Moon spends the day in your home and family sector, Scorpio, and the need for familiarity and comfort is strongly stimulated. Even so, the day favors new ideas and novel approaches. Information you uncover today can be helpful or a pleasant surprise. You could find that finances, health, or work matters move forward, or you feel more optimistic about the direction in which these things are heading. Follow your inner guide now, but keep your mind open to new perspectives for best results. Your ability to find innovative solutions to practical problems increases today. Being especially open and forthcoming with family can be rewarding now.

 

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

With Mercury in your sign in harmonious aspect to exciting Uranus in your creative sector, dear Sagittarius, you’re likely to feel quite free and courageous about expressing yourself in unique and spirited ways today. Your more unique qualities, particularly related to the mind, are emphasized and appreciated. People are attracted to your personal convictions. There is a high ability to express yourself in positive and even inspiring ways now. Open and honest conversations with others, particularly a partner, lover, or child, can be in focus. Looking ahead rather than dwelling on the past is your preference now and serves you well for the time being.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

A lot is going on under the hood in your life these days, dear Capricorn, with the Sun, Mercury, and Saturn in your privacy sector. Today, Mercury harmonizes with Uranus, opening you up just a little and encouraging you to reach out, particularly to family or those you hold dear, however. Family matters are in good form, and progressive ideas about how to make yourself feel secure can be easy to come by. The atmosphere is open and honest. Inner restlessness can sometimes lead us down the wrong path, but today, it may motivate you to make a positive change or to improve your life somehow. Trying something new can be refreshing, and it can also lead to fresh ideas.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

The Moon is in your sign all day, dear Aquarius, and it also harmonizes with Mercury, Uranus, and Saturn. You have a stronger need to feel connected with others and for your emotions to be validated, and nice channels are available for you to express yourself. You are magnetic today, particularly in your communications. Good ideas are flowing freely around you. There can be a wonderful feeling of being in sync with friends and a love interest. Look for ways to move forward, open up the lines of communication, and to put dysfunctional elements of your life behind you.

 

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

The Moon spends another full day in your privacy sector, Pisces, signaling an emotional need for more time to yourself so that you can recharge. Getting extra time to think and muse is especially helpful with a Mercury-Uranus aspect occurring now that stimulates creative, progressive thinking. With business, money, and your practical affairs, you’re finding it easier to identify the things that are working for you and the things you need to discard or improve. You’re in a good frame of mind to see where you can excel by taking a small risk or making a change. Information that comes in or ideas you generate pull you out of any thinking rut you may have been in. Communicating frankly and with transparency can be very rewarding now.

If You Were Born On Today, Saturday, November 25th

You are exceedingly charming–and some of that charm is quite kooky and endearing. You are a magnanimous person with a big heart. You’re fun-loving, yet you are success-oriented at the same time. People trust you. Your jovial disposition makes you a pleasure to be around. Broad-minded, you seek truths without fussing over the details. Facts don’t impress you as much as broader truths do. There is a spiritual side to you that is not immediately apparent. Famous people born today: Ricardo Montalban, John Larroquette, Amy Grant, Joe DiMaggio, Christina Applegate, John F. Kennedy Jr.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

The Sun in a waxing sextile to the Moon in your Solar Return chart has a fortunate influence on your year ahead. You can be especially productive this year, as in many ways you are starting fresh, but you have a rather clear vision of what you want to accomplish. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa, which helps to boost your confidence and happiness levels. You more readily accept that challenges are part of the natural cycle in life, which in turn helps you to meet them with confidence and to worry less. You are likely to be on top of your game this year for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body.

Something big is in the works regarding your love or social life. You’ll have a chance to heal old wounds with regards to love and friendship this year. You’re also bound to find new ways of making money. Relationships are mutually beneficial and naturally equal, fair, and balanced during this period of your life. There can be a stronger inclination towards togetherness and sharing.

Your ability to concentrate and focus is enhanced this year. You may, in fact, have a lot of work to do in relative solitude or you might often retreat to study, work, or think. You might be required to travel for business purposes. Thinking in realistic and practical terms is your best bet, and the need for tangible results for your efforts is strong.

You may be actively involved in teamwork and collaboration with others this year. Passions are stirred and you’re in a good position for connecting with others to accomplish your goals. There can be the beginning of a significant new relationship or the intensification of an existing romance.

With the Mars-Pluto energy in your Solar Return, channeled positively, you could move mountains when it comes to pushing your projects ahead. If mishandled, however, you could be argumentative, stressed, and hell-bent on having your way! The bottom line is a tendency towards obsessive or compulsive behavior. Avoid taking extreme measures to make things happen your way, and avoid people who might be doing same. Deliberately trying to maneuver things in order to get the upper hand will be a lesson in frustration.

Developing existing businesses is highly favored this year. Long-term alliances can be made. This is a potentially excellent year for making prosperous connections.

This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.

This can be a good time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease. Wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year.

Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely this year, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results. The year is good for enjoying wonderful social or love opportunities. Your faith increases and you seek out more meaning from your life. You’re in good shape for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities as well. Useful contacts can be made during this period. Your love or social life grows and satisfies.

 

2017 is a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.

2018 will be a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.

 

Get A Jump On Tomorrow…..

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, November 26th, 2017

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

You’re entering a slightly less sociable phase early today, dear Aries. This phase is only two and a half days long when it’s natural to need to recharge your emotional batteries. It’s not the best time for visibility, but some level of withdrawal is necessary for busier days to come. Intensity, passion, and emotional attachment are more prominent themes in your love life with Venus transiting your intimacy sector these days, and today’s Venus-Chiron aspect gives you a boost. Attracting resources from outside sources comes more easily. It’s an excellent time to work out money problems or other issues of sharing with a partner. It’s also great for repairing relationship woes, if necessary, or of coming to a better understanding of your relationship situation. You also have great influences with you for making sound, intelligent plans and mapping out a creative project, publishing effort, or educational plan.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

Ideally in the last couple of days, you have become clearer about what is expected of you, and what you can expect from yourself, dear Taurus. Now, it’s time to absorb what you’ve learned but also to release some of the pressure. You’re in a great position to socialize or network. Venus has been moving through your partnership sector, warming up close relationships or brings pleasant people into your experience. Today is excellent for naturally gaining respect without having to prove yourself. You are especially relatable, and your ability to connect with others enhanced further.

Gemini

 

Gemini
Gemini

With the Moon moving into your public sector early today, Gemini, it’s that time of the month when you should be on your best behavior. It’s also time to take care of business, attend to professional priorities, and keep your cool (unless you want something private to come to light). A Saturn-Pallas aspect today suggests excellent opportunities to clarify a long-term goal, lay down plans, and collaborate. Teamwork is favored, particularly if you’re mapping out future projects and plans or working on a design. Today also brings warm energy for putting faith in and learning from someone. You can be especially productive with work or health pursuits. You are working smarter, not harder now.

Cancer

 

Cancer
Cancer

This can be a time when attractions and desires are sudden, dear Cancer, but it’s experimental and sudden attractions don’t necessarily settle in for the long term. Rebelliousness or impulsiveness are tendencies now if you’re feeling stressed. Despite some fickleness, overall it’s a good — even excellent — day for strengthening a love bond. Venus in your romance sector is supported by Chiron today, helping you to open up your heart courageously. A relationship can bump up to a new level today.

 

Leo

 

Leo
Leo

You value familiarity in love with Venus in your sector of home and family these days, dear Leo, and you can sometimes feel a little off center if schedules change or plans are disrupted. Today, expect the unexpected and aim to be flexible. You may be unsure whether you want to play it safe or go out on a limb. Even so, bringing peace, harmony, and beauty to your home environment can be a compelling need, and you should find it easier to do so today. It’s also a time for healing and better understanding your feelings and affections.

 

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

You can learn a lot about your relationships today, dear Virgo, and also about your own needs, wants, and desires. Read too much or dig too deeply and you will only get yourself into ambiguous territory, however. This can be revealing if you’re in the right frame of mind, but perhaps a little disruptive if you’re avoiding deeper issues. These days, verbal rapport and open lines of communication are especially vital to engage your heart. Today is, in fact, strong for showing support of important people in your life, particularly verbally. It can also be a good time for making a decision about finances or making significant purchases. You enjoy talking about what interests you, and you see great value in the exchange of ideas.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

You might experience a compelling desire to spend on clothes, furniture, and entertainment, or anything that makes you feel comfortable, secure, and pampered today, dear Libra. You experience this more often with Venus in your solar second house, and today it’s unusually active. Of course, it’s important to consider the future if making significant outlays, as comfort in the present may not be worth longer-term feeling of insecurity or worry over resources. If you move past your fears and look within, you can take fuller advantage of a lovely Venus-Chiron aspect that rounds everything out quite nicely. This is a time for opening your heart and putting fears behind you. Others may be putting faith in you under this influence, and they especially appreciate your more unusual and unique qualities. This is also a good time for work or practically-oriented relationships.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

The Moon moves into your romance and creativity sector, dear Scorpio, and you have a stronger sense of fun today. There can be some minor struggles with seemingly at odds needs for closeness and intimacy and your desire for independence which can throw others for a loop. This energy can also be felt through desires for unusual things, activities, and pleasures that are different or reflect your inner unrest and need for change. Insecurities are likely to dissipate dramatically once you get in touch with your heart and a Venus-Chiron aspect active today helps you along. You are more courageous in love and putting your faith in someone tends to encourage them to do right by you. You are also in great shape for making progress on your practical affairs, particularly regarding building plans and designs.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

This is a good time for opening up to someone special, dear Sagittarius. It doesn’t have to be a commitment or a statement if you’re not ready to make one; it can simply be current feelings or stories about the past. An epiphany of sorts along romantic and creative lines related to private matters of the heart is likely to happen. You may wrestle with whether to get close or to keep a bit of distance with someone, but it’s a good time to be honest with yourself about how you feel. This can also be an excellent time for firming up plans and working diligently on a pet project. You have a unique sense of what others want.

 

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

While you’ve been quite delighted with comfortable activities in the past couple of days, Capricorn, you’re more inclined to reach out and communicate today. There can be some feelings of unrest experienced now, likely due to an unacknowledged need for a small change of pace in your relationships or patterns of relating. However, divine energy is with you now for bonding and enjoying good company. You might derive particular pleasure and satisfaction from groups of like-minded individuals, or with friends and associates. There can be healing powers to your words. Opening up to warm feelings brings rewards now. Also today, Saturn forms a harmonious aspect with Pallas, and you’re in an excellent position to make practical and intelligent plans or designs, mainly related to your home and family life. Others appreciate your patience and wisdom now.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

Early today, the Moon leaves your sign, and this tends to take emotional pressure off, Aquarius. Even so, you remain a little more sensitive than usual today. Try not to speak too soon of unrest, as you may only need a change of pace. You also benefit from a Venus-Chiron aspect that generates good energy for understanding a business or financial matter or the motives of a person you work with or for. It’s important to be open to learning from and through others and to share your own expertise as well for best results. Social opportunities can come through business or career connections. Some of you could enjoy a pay increase.

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

The Moon enters your sign very early today, and this brings your emotions to the surface, Pisces. You could have a feeling of urgency when it comes to filling your emotional needs. Look for inspiration from a loved one, as someone could awaken a new perspective or way of thinking in you. You fare best when you are reaching out beyond your usual bounds these days, and it makes sense for you to aim to deal with fears of change so that you can move past them. Insecurities are understood and managed well now. This is a good time for personal charm and attractiveness. You are especially likable and relatable today.

 

 

 

Tarot Card of the Day

Ten of Wands


This suit, most often called “Wands” and sometimes called “Rods” or “Staves,” represents initiative, ambition, drive and desire. This is the suit of enterprise and risk-taking.

The Ten of this suit represents an all-out effort, an obsessive commitment to a task which demands everything you’ve got. The person shown in decks with pictures is in no position to rest until he makes it inside the stout walls of the well-defended castle in the distance. If he fails, he will become prey for the highway robbers after dark.

It doesn’t matter that he’s overloaded and underfed. With this card, you have to do whatever it takes to get to completion — nothing can be allowed to interfere.

Tarot Love Card of the Day

The Emperor


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Emperor card has selected you to let you know that you sow seeds of better things and more fulfilling times ahead. Give yourself permission to reach out for more, especially if you are dissatisfied. You create a solid foundation, built on a sense of higher purpose. If your current relationship suffers from stress, today let tender actions reveal what you may be unable to put into words. Rebuild, from the ground up.

Erotic Tarot Card of the Day

The Pope


The Pope represents pure masculine energy, and even if you’re female you’re going to be identifying more with your male counterparts today. The Pope shows you that coming to terms with past mistakes and taking responsibility for them in the present eases sexual tension, so let go of the past to free yourself from your inhibitions. You actually have quite the skill set when it comes to making sexual moves, but waiting until the time is right before taking the plunge can be a real turn-on. Let the anticipation build until you can’t take it anymore!

Psychic Tip of the Day

TWO DREAMING

This is a great day for the two of you to begin again. Discuss your plans for the year ahead and grow together as you plan your growth. Are you excited about the future?

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today

The Magus



The Magus is the physical embodiment of decisive action based upon knowledge and aimed squarely at specific goals. Thoroughly Yang by nature and firmly set in the material world, he none-the-less has a powerful spiritual connection as well. His knowledge, wisdom and skill are all encompassing. He is complete. His power as a creator is unmatched on our earthly plane. He is self-aware and unafraid to act. His enormous strength gives him the freedom to act as he chooses. However, responsibility comes with that freedom. Because he is not bound to the restraints of others he must choose how to act. The question that always lies before him is should he act morally, or forsake ethics for personal gain.

As a daily card, The Magus suggest you currently possess a tremendous power and freedom to move your life in any direction you choose. In short, you can make things happen. Your true challenge at the moment is to move forward without trampling the dreams of others. Fortunately your moral fiber is strong as well, and will guide you down the right path.

Your Animal Spirit for Today

Wolf

Wolf can survive either as a loner or as part of a pack, and he howls to remind you that you have to balance the needs of others with the needs of the self. If you’re giving yourself away to your own detriment, you are living in opposition to Wolf medicine. Return to balance—and begin feeding your emotions, your mind, and your body.

 

Your Karmic Number for Saturday,

You are a natural leader today. People will look to you to clear a path for them to follow. You may be asked to take the reins of a project or situation because of your ability to listen and provide clear communication. Don’t be shy or doubt your abilities – you have unique talent that only your own self-doubt can hide. Abundance flows to you when you step into the role of leading others. If you aren’t offered an opportunity, look for one as a volunteer or even start writing a blog.

Your Earth Sky News for Nov. 25th: Orion the Hunter now easy to view

 

Tonight, watch for Orion the Hunter – perhaps the easiest-to-identify of all constellations – rising at mid-evening. It’s around late November and early December that people begin to notice Orion in the evening sky, and to comment on it. Orion will climb over your eastern horizon by around 9 p.m. tonight. You can find this constellation and watch it for months to come.

The most noticeable part of Orion is the pattern called Orion’s Belt: three medium-bright stars in a short, straight row. As seen from mid-northern latitudes, Orion appears to be lying on his side – with his Belt stars pointing upward – when he first ascends into our eastern sky in mid-evening at this time of year. Orion’s two brightest stars — Betelgeuse and Rigel — shine on opposite sides of the Belt.

This shift in Orion’s location is due to Earth’s movement in orbit around the sun. As we move around the sun, our perspective on the stars surrounding us shifts. At the same hour daily, all the stars in the eastern half of sky climb up a bit higher, whereas all the stars in the western half of sky sink a bit closer to the western horizon.

Are you familiar with the W- or M-shaped constellation Cassiopeia the Queen? Or Polaris, the North Star? As Orion rises in the east this evening, look for Cassiopeia to soar to her highest point for the night, above Polaris in the northern sky.

 

Bottom line: The famous constellation Orion the Hunter is rising at mid-evening in late November and early December.
